Leo Cullen has made eight changes to his Leinster team ahead of tomorrow's Pro 12 clash with Glasgow Warriors.

Dave Kearney is back from injury and will come in on the left wing to make his first start since injuring his shoulder in the Six Nations clash against France.

In the centre, Cullen has again gone with Ben Te'o and Garry Ringrose, while in the half backs Luke McGrath and Cathal Marsh will start at nine and ten respectively.

In the pack it's a new front row combination with Peter Dooley, James Tracy and Tadhg Furlong packing down. While in the second row Mick Kearney and Hayden Triggs start together for only the second time this season.

Leinster have also announced that 35,000 tickets have now been sold for the April 2nd game against Munster in the Aviva Stadium.
