Zebo and Coombes return for Munster against Ospreys

(Jack O’Donoghue will captain Munster against the Ospreys to-morrow night)

MUNSTER have selected a few new faces for tomorrow night’s game against the Ospreys in Thomond Park, kick-or 7.35. Simon Zebo returns while Liam Coombes will be eager to follow his sensational try against the South Africans when he returns on the right wing. His cousin Gavin anchors the scrum at number eight. Jack O’Donoghue captains the side and will be eager to impress the Ireland selectors for the forthcoming World Cup while Mark Donnelly and Ethan Coughlan will be hoping for some game time from the bench.
Ospreys Head Coach Toby Booth said: “Munster are a tough opposition, but the boys are in good fettle as we had some extra preparation time in the buildup. Going to Munster is never easy, especially on a Friday night, but we’ve been to Ireland on a Friday night before and come away with the win.”
