O'Driscoll in squad for final Leinster game

Brian O'Driscoll will pull on his blue jersey for the last time tomorrow evening, as Leinster take on Glasgow in the RaboDirect Pro12 final.

O'Driscoll declared himself fit last week after he took a knock to the head against Ulster in the semi-final, and has been included in the team announced for tomorrow's game.

Matt O'Connor made three changes from the team that dispatched Ulster, with Mike Ross replacing Martin Moore, Mike McCarthy returning from injury and in for Quinn Roux, and Zane Kirchner replacing Dave Kearney, who is having knee surgery today.

Also of note is Rob Kearney, who wins cap number 150 for Leinster. Glasgow won the September meeting this season, with Leinster repaying the favour in March, making it one victory apiece.

The match will be shown live on RTÉ, TG4 and BBC, with a full-capacity crowd expected.

LEINSTER: Rob Kearney, Fergus McFadden, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy Zane Kirchner, Jimmy Gopperth, Eoin Reddan, Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Mike Ross, Devin Toner, Mike McCarthy, Rhys Ruddock, Shane Jennings Jamie Heaslip (c).
