Offaly man named on bench for Leinster's Pro14 clash with Zebre

Offaly man named on bench for Leinster's Pro14 clash with Zebre

Offaly man Peter Dooley has been named on the bench for Leinster's upcoming Pro14 match with Zebre at the weekend.

Birr man and prop Dooley will start from the bench for the much-changed Leinster side that will be captained by Scott Fardy. Young Jack Dunne is also likely to make his debut for the province from the bench.

There is plenty of experience in the squad even in the absence of the Irish Six Nations stars with Dave Kearney, Jack McGrath, Andrew Porter and Jamison Gibson-Park all lining out on Saturday evening.

Flying winger Adam Byrne has also made the cut with Ross Byrne named at out-half and an in-form Conor O'Brien named to start alongside Rory O'Loughlin in the centre.
