Leinster head coach Matt O'Connor has selected an all-Ireland starting 15 for tomorrow's Heineken Cup trip to Northampton. Brian O'Driscoll will resume his midfield partnership with Gordon D'Arcy with Ian Madigan continuing at out-half alongside Eoin Reddan who is in line to make his 89th Leinster appearance and his 307th career appearance. Luke Fitzgerald joins the Kearney brothers Dave and Rob in the back three.

Jamie Heaslip leads the team and the Naas man is named in the back-row alongside Sean O'Brien and Rhys Ruddock who will win his 69th Leinster cap in Northampton.
Devin Toner returns to the second row after his involvement with Ireland over the recent international series and will partner Mike McCarthy, with Cian Healy, Sean Cronin and Mike Ross - who now lies six appearances shy of the century mark for Leinster - completing the pack. Leo Cullen continues his recent return to action and is one of a further four Ireland internationals on the bench alongside Kiwi out-half Jimmy Gopperth and South African Zane Kirchner.
