Munster director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has made just one change for Saturday afternoon’s Guinness Pro14 clash away to Ospreys at Liberty Stadium.
As was the case last weekend, that one change comes in the halfbacks with Tyler Bleyendaal returning to captain the side in the 10 jersey.
Should he appear off the bench, Irish international John Ryan will make his 100th appearance for the province having made his debut against Cardiff Blues in September 2011. The former Muskerry, CBC and UCC prop becomes the 10th member of the current squad to reach the career milestone.
James Cronin is also included among the replacements and could make his first appearance of the season having successfully rehabbed a knee injury.
Munster: Andrew Conway; Darren Sweetnam, Chris Farrell, Jaco Taute, Alex Wootton; Tyler Bleyendaal (capt), Duncan Williams; Liam O’Connor, Rhys Marshall, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland; Sean O’Connor, Tommy O’Donnell, Jack O’Donoghue.
Replacements: Niall Scannell, James Cronin, John Ryan, Fineen Wycherley, Robin Copeland, James Hart, Rory Scannell, Simon Zebo.
