Glee for Keith on Leinster return
November 1, 2007

Keith Gleeson returns to the Leinster starting line-up for the interprovincial derby against Connacht in the Magners League at the RDS on Friday night.

The Ireland flanker is one of four changes to the team that started last weekend's 16-16 draw against Ulster in Ravenhill.

Luke Fitzgerald starts on the left wing in a backline that includes Gordon D'Arcy, Shane Horgan, Girvan Dempsey and Brian O'Driscoll, who captains the side. Christian Warner partners Chris Whitaker at half-back.

In the pack, Stan Wright comes into the front-row after impressing as a replacement last week in place of Stephen Knoop who picked up a knock. Leo Cullen continues his second row partnership with Malcolm O'Kelly while in the back row Stephen Keogh lines up alongside Jamie Heaslip and Gleeson.
