Leinster and Munster have both named their teams for Friday night's Guinness Pro14 semi-final clash at the Aviva Stadium.

Leinster head coach Leo Cullen has made a number of changes from the team that saw off Ulster last week with captain Johnny Sexton back in the starting 15.

Jordan Larmour is named at full-back with Hugo Keenan on the right-wing and James Lowe on the left-wing.

Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose will form the centre partnership with Luke McGrath alongside Sexton in the half backs.

In the pack, Cian Healy, Rónan Kelleher and Andrew Porter make up the front row with Devin Toner and Scott Fardy in the second row behind them.

The back row sees Caelan Doris at blindside, with Will Connors at openside and finally Jack Conan at number eight.

Munster have made three changes to the side that beat Connacht last week with the backline unchanged for the third week in a row.

Stephen Archer, Billy Holland and Jack O’Donoghue all come into the pack.

Shane Daly starts at full-back with Andrew Conway and Keith Earls, who made his 100th Pro14 appearance last weekend, on either wing.

Damian de Allende and Chris Farrell form the centre pairing once again, while Conor Murray and JJ Hanrahan start at 9 and 10.

Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell and Archer pack down in the front row.

Last week’s Man of the Match Tadhg Beirne and Holland are in the second row with captain Peter O’Mahony, O’Donoghue and CJ Stander completing the starting 15.

Mike Haley has recently recovered from a calf injury and is in line for his first appearance since last month's restart.
