Just one change is made from the side originally named to face Racing 92 for tomorrow’s European Champions Cup encounter with Glasgow Warriors at Thomond Park – ko 1pm.
Having completed his return to play protocols for a concussion sustained against Leinster earlier this month, Keith Earls returns to the matchday squad and starts on the left wing.
Tyler Bleyendaal and Darren Sweetnam will make their European debuts while academy prop Brian Scott could also do so after being named on the bench.
Our late friend, Head Coach and former captain Anthony Foley will also be remembered by both players and supporters at tomorrow’s game, details of which can be found here.
As a mark of respect to Anthony who made the Munster number 8 jersey his own for so many seasons, the number 8 jersey will be retired for tomorrow’s game with CJ Stander to wear number 24.
In squad news, the province can confirm that scrum half Tomás O’Leary has joined French Top 14 outfit Montpellier on a four month loan agreement.
Munster XV: Simon Zebo; Darren Sweetnam, Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Tyler Bleyendaal, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Donnacha Ryan, Billy Holland; Peter O'Mahony – capt., Tommy O'Donnell, CJ Stander.
Replacements: Duncan Casey, Brian Scott, Stephen Archer, Robin Copeland, Jack O'Donoghue, Duncan Williams, Ian Keatley, Ronan O'Mahony.
