Rugby Larmour gets nod ahead of Rob Kearney for Leinster opener

Rugby I be crazy about extensions, because they are beautiful!

Champions Cup Pool 1: Leinster v Benetton Rugby, Saturday November 16th, The RDS (kick-off 3.15pm, BT Sport)

In what may be a sign of things to come, Jordan Larmour has been named at fullback ahead of Rob Kearney in the Leinster team to face Benetton for Saturday’s Champions Cup opener at the RDS.

“Rob came off the bench last week,” said Leinster coach Leo Cullen. “With him and Jordan we would have chopped and changed them a bit last season. We look at the team we are playing against so Jordan gets the nod this week. Rob is not a million miles away.”

Ireland’s starting tighthead prop Tadhg Furlong has a “slight issue with his back” since returning from the World Cup in Japan so the in-form Andrew Porter will start in the number three jersey.

“It’s nothing major with Tadhg but I thought Ports did very well for us since he has come back in.”

These add-ons are quite magnificent!
