LEINSTER HEAD COACH Leo Cullen has made four changes, including at out-half, from his Champions Cup final side as his charges go into battle again in tomorrow’s Pro14 semi-final against Munster at the RDS (kick-off 14.30 eir Sport).

Jonathan Sexton is among the replacements for the eastern province with Ross Byrne starting at number 10. Scott Fardy also drops to the bench as Rhys Ruddock comes in to captain the side from the back row.
Rob Kearney and Sean O’Brien are not among the 23, meaning the Tullow Tank has already played his final game on home turf for Leinster.
Dave Kearney replaces his brother in the back three with Jordan Larmour shifting to fullback while O’Brien’s 7 shirt will be filled by Josh van der Flier on another early return from injury.

Last year’s double winners were dethroned as European champions in a bruising affair with Saracens and a well-rested Munster side will hope to double the pain in tomorrow’s hotly-anticipated inter-pro.
Nick McCarthy will hope to feature against his future employers off the bench where he takes a place alongside Ed Byrne and Andrew Porter who also missed out on last week’s matchday squad.
