The front row is made up of Jordan Duggan, Shane Delahunt and Dominic Robertson-McCoy, while there's a youthful second row of Oisin Dowling and Niall Murray.
The starting XV is completed by number 8 Jarrad Butler alongside flankers Cian Prendergast and Conor Oliver.
6 forwards and 5 backs mad=ke up the replacement bench, including new signings Greg McGrath and Shayne Bolton, as well as Academy players Ciaran Booth, Oisin McCormack and Diarmuid Kilgallen.
