There’s a repeat of last year’s Guinness Pro14 final in Dublin tonight
Leinster v Ulster live stream: How to watch the Pro14 match online from anywhere
Tonight it’s a repeat of last season’s Guinness Pro14 final as Leinster host Ulster at the RDS Arena in Dublin (kick-off 7.35pm).
While Leinster triumphed 27-5 back in September, Ulster can take inspiration from Wasps, who last weekend inflicted a heavy defeat on Exeter in what was a repeat of the Gallagher Premiership final but with a very different result.
It’s been a perfect ten wins out of ten for Ulster in the league this season and they sit ten points clear of Leinster at the top of Conference A.
Leinster have played two fewer matches than their provincial rivals but did suffer their first defeat of the season last weekend, when they were beaten 35-24 by Connacht.
Can the defending Pro14 champions bounce back tonight? They have named 15 internationals in their starting XV, including Jordan Larmour, who returns after three months out with a shoulder injury. Ross Byrne, normally a fly-half, also starts his first match at outside-centre.
Wallaby Sam Carter captains an Ulster side featuring six Ireland internationals. Expect Marcell Coetzee to have a big influence from No 8, too. The Springbok tops several statistics charts in the Pro14, including most tries (8), carries (107) and offloads (18).
Here’s a reminder of what happened the last time the two sides met and below we have the team line-ups and TV details.
Leinster: Hugo Keenan; Jordan Larmour, Ross Byrne, Robbie Henshaw, Dave Kearney; Johnny Sexton (captain), Jamison Gibson-Park; Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Andrew Porter, Scott Fardy, James Ryan, Rhys Ruddock, Josh van der Flier, Caelan Doris.
