Cian Healy returns to the Leinster team for tomorrow night's Champions Cup clash against Castres in Stade Pierre-Antoine (Kick Off: 8.45pm – live on SKY Sports).

Healy scored a try in last week's win over Montpellier after being introduced as a sub for Jack McGrath in the 52nd minute.

He takes his place alongside Richardt Strauss - another new starter from last week's team - and Tadhg Furlong in the front row.

Ross Molony is the other change for Cullen's men as he makes his second European start alongside Devin Toner.

Sean O'Brien will sit this one out as he continues to recover from a minor calf strain.
