Gleeson bids RDS farewell
May 2, 2008

The Leinster team to face the Dragons in the province's final home Magners League match of the season at the RDS on Saturday has been named.

Ireland duo Trevor Hogan and Keith Gleeson return to the starting line-up for the penultimate game of the season and Gleeson's inclusion will mark his final home appearance for the province before his retirement.

There is a familiar look to the remainder of the forwards, with Ollie le Roux starting alongside Bank of Ireland Player of the Year Bernard Jackman and Stan Wright.

Shane Horgan has recovered from illness to take his place in a strong backline which includes fellow Ireland internationals Girvan Dempsey, Rob Kearney and captain Brian O'Driscoll.

Chris Whitaker partners Jonathan Sexton at-half back with Felipe Contepomi partnering O'Driscoll at centre.
