Joe Schmidt has made six changes for Saturday’s Heineken Cup against Montpellier at the RDS.

Leo Cullen will captain the side as they go in search of a home quarter final. Cullen will pack down alongside Damian Browne at lock while Jamie Heaslip makes his 50th Heineken Cup appearance and is named in an all-Ireland back row alongside Sean O’Brien and Rhys Ruddock.

In the backline, Isaac Boss partners Bank of Ireland Player of the Month Jonathan Sexton at half back, with Eoin O’Malley coming in to partner Gordon D’Arcy in the midfield and Fergus McFadden shifting to the wing.

The game is a complete sellout and fans are advise to arrive early to the RDS.
