HEAD TO HEAD
Jamie Heaslip v SebastiEn Chabal
Luke Fitzgerald this week subtly suggested that the best place for the lavishly paid French man would be on his derrière; the tussle for inches will receive a shuddering endorsement from the winner of this particular battle. Watch for the coin toss -- Leinster may wish to kick an opening restart into Chabal's bread basket and then violently send him wheeling backwards at a rate of knots.
