Centre Gordon D’Arcy has shaken off the calf strain which had ruled him out for the last few games and will partner Brian O’Driscoll for Leinster's RaboDirect PRO12 semi-final with Glasgow. 

Isaac Boss links up with Jonathan Sexton at halfback, with Isa Nacewa forming a back three alongside Lions fullback Rob Kearney and Fergus McFadden.

Sean O’Brien (calf) is a slight concern and should he fail to fully recover his place will be taken in the panel by fellow Ireland backrower Shane Jennings.

Cian Healy starts in the front row alongside Richardt Strauss and Mike Ross with Devin Toner lining out for the 125th time in Leinster colours.

Leinster XV to play Glasgow Warriors, RDS, Saturday 7.35pm: Rob Kearney, Fergus McFadden, Brian O’Driscoll, Gordon D’Arcy, Isa Nacewa, Jonathan Sexton, Isaac Boss; Cian Healy, Richardt Strauss, Mike Ross, Leo Cullen (c), Devin Toner, Kevin McLaughlin, Sean O’Brien/Shane Jennings, Jamie Heaslip. 

Tony Ward believes that Leinster are set up for a double trophy winning end to the season


Replacements: Sean Cronin, Jack McGrath, Jamie Hagan, Quinn Roux, Shane Jennings / Rhys Ruddock, John Cooney, Ian Madigan, Andrew Conway.
