Leinster bounced back from their mauling in Toulouse on matchday two of the Heineken Cup with a 28-14 win against Edinburgh at the RDS.

And Ireland and Leinster captain Brian O’Driscoll will hope his team are equally as fired up when the teams meet at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Michael Cheika’s side have given themselves a chance to progress from Pool 6 and are only two points behind leaders Toulouse but they must emerge from the Scottish captial with a win.

Edinburgh have lost all three of their opening matches and no side in the competition’s history has ever gone on to qualify from that position.

The Leinster team to face Edinburgh in Saturday’s clash has been named.

Bank of Ireland Player of the Month Bernard Jackman is named in an unchanged front row alongside Ollie le Roux and Stan Wright, while the only change to the pack that defeated Edinburgh 28-14 last weekend sees Shane Jennings start in the back-row alongside Stephen Keogh and Jamie Heaslip.

Guy Easterby will partner Felipe Contepomi at half-back after signing a short-term contract with the province earlier this week, and in doing so will make his 60th Leinster appearance (and 15th in the Heineken Cup). 

Girvan Dempsey returns to the starting line-up and will start at full-back with Rob Kearney switching to the left wing. Dempsey is one of 13 full Ireland internationals in the squad, with another four having been capped at Ireland ‘A’ level.

Luke Fitzgerald has been named on a strong-looking replacements bench which includes the likes of Keith Gleeson and Jonathan Sexton. Brian O’Driscoll captains the side.
