It's a familiar line-up for Leinster as they prepare to travel to Bready to play NW Warriors on Thursday.

They have gone with the squad that beat the Knights in La Manga after the scheduled opener against the Warriors was washed out.

There's one name missing though - Josh Little ruled out with a back injury.

Defending champions Lightning have not included Eddie Richardson in their ranks - the North County all-rounder a mainstay of their 15 trophies during the six years of the revamped interpro series.

It's a strong squad which contains no fewer than nine senior internationals.

“We’re excited to get going in the InterProvincial series again after a month of international cricket," said Lightning Head Coach Albert van der Merwe.

"The North West Warriors are always tough to beat at home, and we expect nothing different next week up in Bready.”
