Ireland and Lions prop Tadhg Furlong will play his first match in a year tomorrow when he lines out for Leinster against the Scarlets

Having recovered from a calf issue and been included in the Six Nations squad this week, he's set to start for the defending champions in Wales in the Guinness PRO14.

The Wexford native hasn't played a game since the Blues' encounter with Benetton in January 2020.

Scrum-half Luke McGrath will captain Leinster while teenager Jamie Osborne is in line to win his first cap from the bench.

Max O’Reilly makes his second appearance at full-back, with Cian Kelleher on the right wing and Dave Kearney on the left. Ciarán Frawley and Liam Turner are in midfield with Harry Byrne joining McGrath in the half-backs.

Peter Dooley and James Tracey are named alongside Furlong in the front-row with Ross Molony and Ryan Baird in the second-row and a back-row of  Josh Murphy, Dan Leavy and Jack Conan.
