Edinburgh centre Nick De Luca has vowed to nullify the threat of Brian O'Driscoll and his fellow Leinster backs in Saturday's Heineken Cup match.
De Luca has been in fine form for Edinburgh this season
The Scottish side lost 28-14 against Leinster last Friday, but De Luca was praised for his performance in the number 13 jersey.
And the 23-year-old said he was relishing the prospect of facing the Irish side at Murrayfield.
"Playing against Brian O'Driscoll is a great challenge," he said.
De Luca said the Edinburgh backs would be aiming to keep a clean sheet at Murrayfield.
"It's not just O'Driscoll we have to deal with - there is also Gordon D'Arcy just inside him and Shane Horgan outside him," he said.
"Leinster have also got Felipe Contempomi, who pulls the strings at 10.
"They have got a very talented backline, so it is a challenge for our whole backline to try to subdue them."
De Luca added: "Unfortunately they managed to get three tries at the weekend, so the backs' goal this weekend is to achieve a clean sheet."
