Leinster will step up their double bid when they face Glasgow Warriors in the RaboDirect PRO12 play-off semi-final.

The Dubliners, who will face Ulster in the Heineken Cup final next Saturday, have made 15 changes to their starting XV - having rested their squad for the 22-18 win over the Dragons.

Rob Kearney (back) and Brian O'Driscoll (knee) will miss out, though, after picking up little knocks in training.

Isa Nacewa will make his 100th appearance for the province, while Jamie Heaslip will skipper the side.

Glasgow have made five changes to their line-up following the 24-3 win against Connacht.

Leadership

Chris Cusiter, Ryan Grant, Pat MacArthur, Mike Cusack and captain Al Kellock are all handed starts as they look to upset the odds.

"We've picked 23 men who we firmly believe have it in them to achieve a special result for Glasgow Warriors," coach Sean Lineen told glasgowwarriors.org.

"Once again, we're expecting the intensity and pace of the game to be Test level, and that's where the combined efforts of the starting XV and a strong bench can really come into their own.

"It's especially the case for the six front row guys that they'll all have a significant role to play, and we're in the fortunate position of having half a dozen lads who are performing to a high level, never mind the likes of Gordon Reid, Finlay Gillies and Ed Kalman who have also shown up well.

"Al Kellock and Chris Cusiter give us experience, leadership and class, but again we're delighted to have Tom Ryder and Henry Pyrgos ready and waiting to bring their influence to bear from the bench."
