Brian O'Driscoll has been named in the Leinster team for tomorrow's Heineken Cup final against Northampton.

The Ireland captain limped off during Leinster's Magners League semi-final victory over Ulster last Friday, raising doubts about his availability at the Millennium Stadium this weekend.

But O'Driscoll will line up in an unchanged team from the side that toppled Heineken semi-final opponents Toulouse in Dublin three weeks ago.

Northampton also say same-again after their semi-final triumph against Perpignan, with England wing Chris Ashton back in action a week after being punched by Leicester centre Manu Tuilagi in an Aviva Premiership play-off clash that Tigers won 11-3.
