Gordon D'Arcy has been named in a strong Leinster team to face Ulster in their Magners League clash on Sunday.

D'Arcy is the only member of Ireland's RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam-winning side to take part, and he will partner Fergus McFadden in a backline that also includes Shane Horgan, Girvan Dempsey and the returning Chris Whitaker, who will start at scrum-half.

Leo Cullen will partner Malcolm O'Kelly, while Isa Nacewa will get a rare start on the wing against Matt Williams' side.

The replacements bench will be named closer to kick-off.

Leinster team v Ulster: Girvan Dempsey; Shane Horgan, Fergus McFadden, Gordon D'Arcy; Isa Nacewa, Felipe Contepomi, Chris Whitaker; Cian Healy, Bernard Jackman; Stan Wright, Leo Cullen, Malcolm O'Kelly; Cameron Jowitt, Shane Jennings, Rocky Elsom.
