Leinster coach Leo Cullen has been forced to name his XV for tomorrow's Pro 12 final against Connacht without Isa Nacewa and Devin Toner.

Cullen has made two enforced changes from the side that defeated Ulster in the semi-final as Ireland full back Rob Kearney replaces Nacewa, who suffered an arm injury during the victory, and Ross Molony comes in for Toner. Kiwi Hayden Triggs comes in on the bench.

Otherwise, it's as you were. Johnny Sexton and Eoin Reddan are the half backs, with Ben Te'o and Garry Ringrose in midfield. Luke Fitzgerald and Dave Kearney retain their spots on the left and right wing repsectively.

There's an all Irish international front row of Jack McGrath, Richardt Strauss and Mike Ross,  with a back row of Rhys Ruddock, Jordi Murphy and captain Jamie Heaslip completing the pack.
