Munster complete their British & Irish Cup Pool campaign with the game against the Scottish side Heriots in Musgrave Park tomorrow evening (7.30 pm).

They currently lie second in the table, on 17 points, one point behind Bristol. However Bristol have completed their programme and with just one side advancing to the April semi final the minimum Munster require is one point having already defeated Bristol in the Pool stages.

Coaches Anthony Foley and Ian Costello once maintain consistency in selection with just three changes from the side that came from 12-0 down at half time to beat Neath 21-12 at The Gnoll last time out.

Two of those changes come about as a result of injury, Tom Gleeson injured in that game replaced by Mike Kelliher, while Mick Sherry who missed the Neath game through injury returns in place of Sean Henry who is named on the bench.

Billy Holland came on as a second replacement at The Gnoll and not surprisingly keeps the number six jersey on the strength of a good performance then and an equally impressive showing last weekend in the Magners League game at Rodney Parade, albeit as second row partner to Mick O’Driscoll.

Foley and Costello have this side playing an exciting brand of rugby and the game affords Munster supporters the opportunity to see first hand the next generation of Munster players in action.

Munster: Danny Riordan (UL Bohs); Danny Barnes (Dolphin), Mike Kelleher (Richmond), Scott Deasy (Cork Con), Ciaran O’Boyle (Garryowen); Declan Cusack (Thomond), Duncan Williams (Cork Con); Dave Kilcoyne (UL Bohs), Mike Sherry (Garryowen), Stephen Archer (Cork Con); Dave Foley (UL Bohs), Ian Nagle (Cork Con); Billy Holland (Cork Con), Peter O’Mahony (Cork Con) capt., Nick Williams (Dolphin). Replacements: Sean Henry (UL Bohs), Pa O’Regan (UL Bohs), Neville Melbourne (Clonmel), Ed Kelly (UL Bohs), Conor Murray (Garryowen), Jeremy Manning (Cork Con), Sean Scanlon (UCC).
