Leinster will hope to bounce back from their mauling in Toulouse on matchday two of the Heineken Cup against Edinburgh at the Royal Dublin Society ground.

Ireland and Leinster captain Brian O’Driscoll aims to lead by example to put Michael Cheika’s side back in the hunt to progress from Pool 6.

This is the fifth meeting between the sides in the competition and on each occasion the home side have remained unbeaten after recording three wins and a draw.

Edinburgh and former England coach Andy Robinson recorded his first win in charge last weekend in the Magners League against Llanelli Scarlets and will need another impressive display if the Scottish outfit are to keep their slim qualification hopes alive.
