Naas youngster Jimmy O'Brien is set to make his Leinster debut later this evening in the province's Pro14 clash with the Ospreys in Dublin.

The Blues take on the Welsh region in the RDS at 7.35pm in what is a clash between the top side in Conference B and the third placed side in Conference A, with Leinster looking to rubberstamp their authority at the head of the table.

It's a big night for 21-year-old O'Brien who has been impressing for the Ireland 7's side over the past year, with the Naas man likely to make his first senior competitive appearance off the bench.

Flanker Scott Penny is another debutant who will be in from the start, while Jack Kelly is also poised to make his first appearance off the bench too.

O'Brien is joined in the squad by fellow Naas RFC alumni James Tracey and Adam Byrne, with the former starting at hooker and the latter on the right wing.
