After a strong showing against Osprey’s last week, Leinster host Edinburgh tonight in what should be a tighter battle.

Dave Kearney returns to the team and it is about as strong a line up as we have remaining in Ireland.

Ospreys were not able to put up any sort of fight with their team shorn of the front line players. Indeed, Leinster will be kicking themselves that they allowed last Friday’s visitors to score a scarcely deserved try in the closing period.

Edinburgh have started the Pro 14 better, with two wins from two games and are only one point lower than Leinster.

The game kicks off at 19:35. Ben Whitehouse is the referee and the spread is fourteen points at the moment. Here is the team selections:
