Leinster boss Joe Schmidt has named an inexperienced side for tomorrow night's Rabo clash with the Scarlets at the RDS tomorrow night.

Leo Cullen captain's an inexperienced side for the province's fourth meeting of the season against the Welsh side partnering Ben Marshall in the second row

Shane Jennings is back in the starting line-up after missing last weekend's facile win over Treviso and features in the back-row alongside Jordi Murphy and Dominic Ryan, who scored a hat-trick of tries against the Italian side last time out.

In the backline, Isaac Boss links up at half back with Noel Reid, who is one of three current Academy players in the starting line-up, with Andrew Goodman continuing at centre alongside Eoin O'Malley. Fionn Carr joins Andrew Conway and Dave Kearney in the back three.

Ian Madigan and Fergus McFadden are named amongst the replacements after their release from Ireland camp after their training on Friday having failed to make Declan Kidney's 23-man squad for Scotland.
