Scott Fardy will captain Leinster for their Heineken Champions Cup tie against Northampton on Saturday (5.15pm) with Johnny Sexton (knee) ruled out earlier this week through injury. 

The lock is one of five changes to the starting XV announced by Leo Cullen for the Aviva tie. 

It’s the same back three that played last week in Franklin’s Gardens with Jordan Larmour at full-back, Dave Kearney on the right wing and James Lowe on the left.
