Henshaw Among Returning Internationals for Leinster's First Home Game of New Season

Leinster have named a strong side for the clash with Benetton at the RDS.

Leinster have named a host of Irish internationals in their team to play Benetton in the United Rugby Championship tomorrow evening.

Garry Ringrose is named as captain and partners Robbie Henshaw in the centre for the game at the RDS.

There's a new-look back row after last week's win over Zebre, with Ryan Baird, Josh Van Der Flier and Caelan Doris all listed to start. 

Johnny Sexton isn't included in the matchday 23, with Ciarán Frawley starting at out-half.

Meanwhile, Leinster head coach Leo Cullen is refusing to comment on Stuart Lancaster’s reported move to Racing in France.

The province’s senior coach has been heavily linked with a role at the Top 14 club for next season. 

Lancaster will reportedly hold talks with Racing president Jacky Lorenzetti and their current head coach Laurent Travers over the weekend. 

But Cullen has described the proposed departure as ‘speculation’.
