THE Ospreys have brought back Adam Jones as they look to bow out of the Heineken Cup with a bang against Leinster in Dublin on Friday evening.

Aaron Jarvis had the nod at tight-head for the game with Northampton last Sunday.

But he is ruled out by an injury, paving the way for Lions Test man Jones to return to the starting line-up.

Steve Tandy fields an all-international pack that includes six Lions.

Behind the scrum, Sam Davies comes in for the injured Richard Fussell, while Ben John takes over from Tom Isaacs, who is also nursing a bump.

Leinster: Rob Kearney; Dave Kearney, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy, Luke Fitzgerald; Jimmy Gopperth, Eoin Reddan; Cian Healy, Sean Cronin, Martin Moore, Devin Toner, Mike McCarthy, Rhys Ruddock, Jamie Heaslip (capt), Shane Jennings.

Replacements: Richardt Strauss, Jack McGrath, Mike Ross, Leo Cullen, Jordi Murphy, Isaac Boss, Ian Madigan, Zane Kirchner.

Ospreys: Sam Davies ; Jeff Hassler, Jonathan Spratt, Ben John, Aisea Natoga; Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb; Ryan Bevington, Richard Hibbard, Adam Jones, Alun-Wyn Jones (capt), Ian Evans, Tyler Ardron, Ryan Jones, Justin Tipuric.

Replacements: Scott Baldwin, Marc Thomas, Dan Suter, Lloyd Peers, James King, Morgan Allen, Thomas Habberfield, Matthew Morgan.
