They take on reigning champions Exeter tomorrow.

Leinster head-coach Leo Cullen has brought Scott Fardy into his pack for tomorrow's Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final at Exeter. 

The experienced Australian partners Devin Toner in the second-row with Ryan Baird having to settle for a place on the bench. 

Johnny Sexton skippers the PRO14 champions from out-half while Rory O'Loughlin partners Robbie Henshaw in midfield.
