Kings will need to be in regal form to deprive Munster of home victory

(Darren Sweetnam will be keen to impress to-morrow night)

IRISH Independent Park will welcome the Southern Kings tomorrow night but they will be up against a very strong home side that is strongly tipped to the take the points and retain their lofty place in Conference A. Kick-off in this Guinness PRO14 tie is 7.35pm.
Munster appear to be able to field teams of almost identical strength in recent months and even though they have made seven changes to the side that defeated Dragons in their last outing three weeks ago, it is still a formidable matchday squad. Mike Haley at full-back, Conway, Farrell, Rory Scannell and Steadnam in the midfield and Garryowen’s Neil Cronin and Tyler Bleyendaal forming the half-back partnership looks like a potent back seven while the eight selected up front also looks capable of doing the business.
The back row is interesting with Fineen Wycherley and the fit again Chris Cloete at six and seven and Arno Botha at eight. Holland and Klein have formed a rock-solid second row all season and are also in from the start while Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell and John Ryan pack down in the front row.
JJ Hanrahan has recovered from a hip injury sustained last month to take his place in the squad with Academy back-row forward Gavin Coombes also named among the replacements.
Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Darren Sweetnam; Tyler Bleyendaal (C), Neil Cronin; Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland; Fineen Wycherley, Chris Cloete, Arno Botha.
Replacements: Rhys Marshall, Liam O’Connor, Stephen Archer, Darren O’Shea, Gavin Coombes, Alby Mathewson, JJ Hanrahan, Dan Goggin.
