Eight changes for Munster as they chase a place in the PRO14 final

There are eight changes to the Munster 23 from the side that won in Cardiff last week with Billy Holland returning to captain the side.

A win for Johann van Graan’s side will secure a place in the PRO14 final on Saturday, March 27.


Stephen Archer starts on his 224th appearance for the province and will overtake Marcus Horan to move into fifth place on Munster’s all-time list of record appearance holders. Ben Healy comes into the side alongside new Ireland cap Craig Casey with the 21-year-olds forming the half-back partnership.

Mike Haley starts at full-back with Andrew Conway and Shane Daly on either flank. Rory Scannell moves to inside centre with Chris Farrell completing the midfield partnership. James Cronin, Niall Scannell and Archer pack down in the front row with Fineen Wycherley and Holland in the engine room. Jack O’Donoghue, Chris Cloete and Munster’s leading try-scorer Gavin Coombes make up the back row.

Joey Carbery is again named among the replacements having made his return from long-term injury off the bench in Cardiff last week.
