As Munster bid to continue winning ways in the European Champions Cup, Head Coach Anthony Foley makes just two changes from last weekend’s starting line-up for tomorrow night’s home encounter with Saracens.
Both changes are made in the front row and see James Cronin and BJ Botha come in at loosehead and tighthead respectively while Duncan Casey remains at hooker.
Following his debut inclusion in Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad for the upcoming Guinness Series, Dave Foley will start alongside Paul O’Connell in the second row.
In the back row Peter O’Mahony captains the side from 6 with Tommy O’Donnell at 7, and another man of the match performance last weekend sees CJ Stander continue at 8.
Conor Murray and Ian Keatley remain at half back as do Denis Hurley and Andrew Smith in the centre, while Simon Zebo, Andrew Conway and Felix Jones once again make up the back three.
