Trevor Brennan has been recalled to the Leinster side to play Newcastle in the Heineken Cup at Kingston Park on Saturday evening. Coach Matt Williams has handed Brennan the responsibility of replacing suspended flanker Eric Miller, and are otherwise unchanged from the side that beat Munster so dramatically in the Celtic League Final last month.

Miller serves the first of his two match suspension against the Zurich Premiership side after kicking out against Munster number eight Anthony Foley during the Lansdowne Road win. The Irish international will also miss the province's trip to Toulouse next weekend as Leinster bid to complete their Pool C campaign unbeaten.

Meanwhile, the Munster side to play Harlequins on Saturday at Thomond Park will be named after training this afternoon with question marks surrounding the availability of Peter Stringer, David Wallace, John Hayes and Rob Henderson. The Ulster team to play Wasps on Sunday will be named tomorrow.
