Leinster unchanged for Blues clash

10th May 2007

The Leinster team to face the Cardiff Blues in the final Magners League game of the season at the Arms Park has been named.

An unchanged team has been named which means that Reggie Corrigan, Will Green and Guy Easterby will make their final appearances for Leinster after being named in the front row alongside hooker Bernard Jackman .

The rest of the pack remains unchanged from the one that started the Border Reivers game which Leinster won 31-0 last weekend with Trevor Hogan partnering Malcolm O'Kelly at second row and the familiar back-row of Stephen Keogh, Keith Gleeson and the Magners League joint top try scorer Jamie Heaslip (7 tries).

In the back-line, the competition's second top points scorer Felipe Contepomi (181 points, eight behind Glasgow's Dan Parks) captains the side.

Gordon D'Arcy partners Shane Horgan at centre while Brian Blaney and Christian Warner who were late try-scorers last weekend are named on a strong-looking bench.

Two late decisions will be made on the replacements bench at prop and outside back and will be finalised before kick off.

Leinster are expected to be boosted by hundreds of supporters who will make the trip to the Welsh capital.
