Tonga international Viliami Fihaki will make his Edinburgh debut in the Guinness PRO12 clash against Leinster.

The former Sale forward comes in at number eight for the rested Jamie Ritchie, with Magnus Bradbury switching to blindside.

Hamish Watson replaces John Hardie at openside after the Scotland international suffered a head knock during last weekend's 20-9 win over Scarlets.

Head coach Alan Solomons said: "It was good to get the win under our belt last week. We know we need to build on that, but appreciate that we will have to be at our best against a powerful Leinster outfit."
