Leinster V Saracens: Choose A Combined XV From Starting Teams

Sexton Farrell Leinster Saracens

Both Leinster and Saracens have named their teams ahead of Saturday’s Heineken Champions Cup final showdown in St James Park, Newcastle.

Mark McCall has made two changes to his Saracens side who overcame Munster in the semi-final last month. Sean Maitland was a late withdrawal in that game but returns to the starting XV for the final.

Meanwhile, Will Skelton’s impressive performances of late have earned him a spot in the second row alongside George Kruis.

As expected, Leinster have named an unchanged side from their semi-final win over Toulouse with Sean Cronin passed fit.

There is one change on the bench with Jack McGrath named among the substitutes in his final outing in a Leinster jersey.

Both teams are littered with international and British & Irish Lions stars, setting this up to a very intriguing final.

Ahead of the 5pm kick-off in St James Park, we are asking you to choose your preferred combined XV from both sets of starting line-ups.

You can vote in the poll below.
