Robbie Henshaw will be back in Champions Cup action this weekend. The Irish international has recovered from a shoulder injury to start tomorrow’s European semi-final.

Henshaw joins Garry Ringrose in the Leinster centre as Isa Nacewa moves to the wing for tomorrow’s game against Welsh outfit Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium.

James Lowe misses out, as Jamison Gibson-Park starts in the absence of the injured scrum half Luke McGrath and Scott Fardy joins Dan Leavy and Jordi Murphy in the back row, meanwhile, Irishman Tadhg Beirne has been named in the second row for Scarlets.

Rob Kearney starts at full-back with Fergus McFadden on the right wing and Isa Nacewa on the left. Jamison Gibson-Park is joined in the half backs by captain Johnny Sexton.

In the pack, Cian Healy, Seán Cronin and Tadhg Furlong start in the front row with Devin Toner and James Ryan behind them in the second row.

On the bench there is a welcome return from injury for Jack Conan while Jordan Larmour is also back in a European match day squad having missed the Quarter-Final through injury.
