Fit-again Ireland flanker Alan Quinlan returns to Leinster's line-up for Saturday's Celtic League encounter with the Cardiff Blues at Musgrave Park.
Quinlan has recovered from a groin injury and replaces fellow international David Wallace who featured strongly in the 50-6 victory over the Newport-Gwent Dragons.
Team manager Shaun Payne said: "Alan has been bursting his guts to get back. We have had a hard job holding him back but he's certainly ready for it now."
Ireland fly-half Ronan O'Gara and second row Paul O'Connell, who were both unused replacements against the Dragons, are expected to start Munster's second home game of the league campaign.
