James Lowe and Johnny Sexton picked to start for Leinster

An injury to Jamison Gibson-Park has handed James Lowe the opportunity to start on the wing for Leinster against Toulouse on Sunday.

Leo Cullen has recalled his fit-again captain Johnny Sexton at out-half.

Robbie Henshaw joins Garry Ringrose in the centre while Devin Toner is in the second-row with James Ryan.

Rob Kearney's been picked at full-back with Lowe, who could have missed out due to foreign player restrictions, and Jordan Larmour on the wings.
