Garryowen’s Ben Healy gets his first start in the Guinness PRO14

(Pictured at the PRO14 event this week, Jack O’Donoghue will captain Munster)

AFTER showing good form with his club Garryowen FC in this season’s Energia All-Ireland League division 1A, out-half Ben Healy will trot out with the Munster side for his first start in the Guinness PRO14 to-morrow night in Irish Independent Park in Cork.
The Academy man and former Nenagh Ormond and Glenstal Abbey player was a Grand Slam winner with the Ireland U20s last season.
It will also be a significant night for Stephen Archer who makes his 200th Munster appearance, the prop becoming just the 11th Munster man to reach the landmark.
Jack O’Donoghue captains the side and is the only player from last week’s thrilling Champions Cup draw against Racing 92 with 11 of the starting XV products of the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy.
Shane Daly starts at full-back with Calvin Nash and Alex Wootton named on either flank while there is a welcome return for Tommy O’Donnell in the back-row.
Munster: Shane Daly; Calvin Nash, Sammy Arnold, Dan Goggin, Alex Wootton; Ben Healy, Nick McCarthy; Liam O’Connor, Rhys Marshall, Stephen Archer; Fineen Wycherley, Darren O’Shea; Jack O’Donoghue (C) Tommy O’Donnell, Arno Botha.
Replacements: Kevin O’Byrne, James Cronin, Keynan Knox, Jed Holloway, Conor Oliver, Neil Cronin, JJ Hanrahan, Rory Scannell.
