Leinster name five Irish internationals for cup clash

Ireland internationals Girvan Dempsey, Trevor Hogan, Bernard Jackman, Malcolm O'Kelly and Mike Ross have been named in the Leinster squad to play the Exeter Chiefs in Saturday's British & Irish Cup clash in Sandy Park (KO: 3pm).

It should be a great test of the young players in the squad as The Chiefs are in second position in the English Division One.

There is an exciting blend of youth and experience with Shaun Berne - who has an 80% success rate with the boot in the competition to date - and prop Stan Wright named alongside the likes of Michael Keating, Niall Morris and Eoin O'Malley.

LEINSTER SQUAD (v Exeter Chiefs):

FORWARDS: Stan Wright, Mike Ross, Ronan McCormack, Bernard Jackman, Richardt Strauss, Jason Harris-Wright, Trevor Hogan, Malcolm O'Kelly, Devin Toner, Ciaran Ruddock, Eoin Sheriff, Paul Ryan, Stephen Keogh, Jordi Murphy

BACKS: Chris Keane, David Moore, Paul O'Donohoe, Ian Madigan, Shaun Berne, Kyle Tonetti, Eoin O'Malley, Simon Keogh, David Kearney, Girvan Dempsey, Niall Morris, Michael Keating
