Leinster ready for trip to Exeter

Ireland internationals Girvan Dempsey, Trevor Hogan, Bernard Jackman, Malcolm O'Kelly and Mike Ross are in the Leinster squad to face the Exeter Chiefs in tomorrow's British and Irish Cup clash in Sandy Park, Exeter.

There's an exciting blend of youth and experience with Shaun Berne -- who has an 80pc success rate with the boot in the competition to date -- named among the backs alongside the likes of Michael Keating, Niall Morris and Eoin O'Malley.

In the pack, Stan Wright joins the likes of Leinster Academy duo Ciarán Ruddock and Eoin Sheriff, who have both shown impressive recent form.

Leinster lie on top of Pool A having won both of their opening matches and face an Exeter side who lie in second place in the English Championship.

Meanwhile, the Leinster squad will be hosting an open day in the RDS on Monday at the 2pm training session ahead of the home Magners League game against the Scarlets that weekend.

The squad will be put through their paces and after the training session there will be opportunities for supporters to meet the players.

Entrance on the day will be from the Anglesea Road gates and there will be limited car parking in the Simmonscourt Road car park. Gates open at 1.30pm and entrance is free.
