Leinster v Treviso - RaboDirect PRO12 match preview
Leinster have not included prop Cian Healy in the starting XV to face Treviso at the RDS in the RaboDirect PRO12 on Saturday.
The Irish province had previously suggested he may be considered for selection after his three-week ban handed down by the Six Nations disciplinary committee was deferred and only officially starts on Monday.
But Six Nations Rugby Limited issued a statement on Friday stressing that Healy was in fact suspended for the Leinster game.
The hosts welcome back several players who were involved with the Ireland squad recently, with hooker Sean Cronin and scrum-half Eoin Reddan both named in the line-up.
Rhys Ruddock will captain the side as he makes his 50th provincial appearance and is named in a back row which also contains Dominic Ryan and Jordi Murphy.
In total, there are eight changes to the side which claimed a 26-11 win over Cardiff Blues last time out.
Manoa Vosawai starts for Treviso in place of Robert Barbieri. Tommaso Iannone starts on the wing with Michele Rizzo at prop for the Italian side.
Among the other changes, Doppies La Grange moves to inside centre with Andrea Pratichetti in the No 13 shirt.
