Jordan Larmour will continue a sensational rookie season by being parachuted onto the wing for Leinster in tomorrow's Champions Cup final (KO 4.45 Irish time, Sky Sport Action & BT Sport 2).

The 20-year-old is the main beneficiary from Leo Cullen's decision to go with Jamison Gibson-Park as the back-up to Luke McGrath - back from an ankle injury.

Scrum-half McGrath's inclusion means there are two changes from the XV that dominated Scarlets in the semi-final almost three weeks ago. It has the knock-on effect of making wing James Lowe the odd-man-out from Leinster's 'non-European' brigade of three.

Wallaby Scott Fardy is one of the first names on Cullen's team sheet and will stay at blindside behind the lock paring of Devin Toner and James Ryan.

LEINSTER PROBABLE (v Racing 92): R Kearney; J Larmour, G Ringrose, R Henshaw, I Nacewa; J Sexton, L McGrath; C Healy, S Cronin, T Furlong; J Ryan, D Toner; S Fardy, D Leavy, J Murphy.
