The match is on BBC Radio Berkshire and Sky Sports 2 (Setanta in North America) for those of us not heading across the Irish sea. There is always the chance you might find a live internet feed somewhere too especially if you were to type "myp2p" and "rugby" into google.

Some previews of the big game tomorrow night.

Leinster have proven quality through the side. Mike Ross was one of the outstanding tight heads in last season’s Premiership; but he will only make the starting line up if Stan Wright fails a fitness test. And on the other side of the front row is CV Van de Linde; formidable opponents. Faun Rautenbach has been a wrecking ball when he has played off the bench. It will be intriguing to see whether they unleash him from the kick-off.

For the Exiles, Tom Homer replaces the unfortunate Adam Thompstone on the wing and Declan Danaher replaces Richard Thorpe on the blindside from the team that beat Sale last week.

There is also a completely new front row for the Exiles, with last week's trio of Danie Coetzee, Paulica Ion and Dan Murphy making way for David Paice, Faan Rautenbach and Clarke Dermody respectively.

I've only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams have withered and died.
