Team news

Scarlets will be without Wales forwards Ken Owens and Jake Ball for their Pro12 semi-final against Leinster in Dublin.

Owens, who will tour New Zealand with the Lions, is out with an ankle problem while Ball has a shoulder injury.

Scotland back-row John Barclay returns from injury to captain the side in captain Owens's absence, while flanker James Davies also returns.

Lions tourists Johnny Sexton and Robbie Henshaw return to the side, while Ross Molony replaces Devin Toner at lock.

Joey Carbery switches to full-back, with Isa Nacewa returning to the left wing.

Hayden Triggs joins Molony in the second row for his final game in the RDS Arena before he retires at the end of the season.

Davies is back from a shoulder injury he suffered against Dragons in April.

Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac said his side faced a "big task" against a side that beat them 45-9 at the RDS Arena in March.

"It will be a big, big challenge for us but it's also a great opportunity," Pivac said. "That's what the hard work all season has been done for.

"We're not far off having our top side available, we're going in there with some confidence, not over-confident, but confidence that we deserve to be there and we're going to enjoy the occasion."
