Here is the Leinster team to face Racing 92 in the Champions Cup final

Leinster head-coach Leo Cullen has named his team for tomorrow's Champions Cup rugby final against Racing 92.

Isa Nacewa will captain the side in his final European game for Leinster on the left wing. As expected, Jordan Larmour starts on the opposite wing.

Luke McGrath returns from an ankle injury to take his place in the half backs where he will be joined by Johnny Sexton.

Rob Kearney continues at full-back, while Robbie Henshaw is partnered by Garry Ringrose in the centre.

In the pack Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong are the props with Seán Cronin selected at hooker.

Devin Toner starts in the second row with James Ryan beside him.

In the back row, it’s the same trio that accounted for Scarlets in the semi-final with Scott Fardy, Dan Leavy and Jordi Murphy completing the starting line-up.

On the bench Rhys Ruddock has shaken off a hamstring injury to take his place in the match day 23 for the first time since the Saracens game.

Gibson-Park's inclusion as cover for the starting Luke McGrath, combined with Scott Fardy's selection in the pack, means no place in the squad for New Zealand winger James Lowe.
