Leinster team to face Glasgow Warriors

Updated: May 11, 2012

Jamie Heaslip will captain Leinster in their RaboDirect Pro 12 semi-final clash against the Glasgow Warriors on Saturday night after Joe Schmidt named his side for what is the first of three massive games for the Irish province.

Along with Heaslip, Schmidt has named the likes of Sean O’Brien, Jonny Sexton, Fergus McFadden and Shane Jennings in a strong line up as Leinster look to build momentum ahead of their Heineken Cup final against Ulster a week on Saturday.

The game against Glasgow will be a landmark one for fullback Isa Nacewa who will make his 100th appearance for Leinster. Nacewa is joined in the back three alongside Fergus McFadden and Eoin O’Malley after Brian O’Driscoll and Rob Kearney were both ruled out of the game having picked up knocks in training this week.

Over 14,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s game and there are tickets still available at the Leinster Rugby Store (Donnybrook), Spar (Donnybrook) as well as Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. There will also be tickets on sale on the day on both Simmonscourt Road and Anglesea Road from 4pm.
