IT’S as predicted. Munster boss brings back Jaco Taute and CJ Stander but there is no Conor Murray included for this important fixture with his shoulder nerve injury still not fully cleared up.
There are five changes from the last outing with Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell and John Ryan in the front row and Donnacha Ryan and Billy Holland in the second row forming a strong front five. Rory Scannell is recovered from his injury and takes his place in the centre.
Winger Andrew Conway is rewarded for his consistent form and joins Keith Earls and Simon Zebo in the back three. Named in the replacements is Jean Deysel who will make his Champions Cup debut if sprung from the bench.
Munster: Simon Zebo; Andrew Conway, Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Tyler Bleyendaal, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Donnacha Ryan, Billy Holland; Peter O’Mahony (Capt.), Tommy O’Donnell, CJ Stander.
