JJ Hanrahan has been named in the Munster team to face Racing 92 in Paris on Sunday afternoon.
Johann van Graan’s squad will go through their final training session at UL this afternoon and fly to Paris on Saturday for their win-or-bust Champions Cup meeting.
Rory Scannell and Chris Farrell pair up in the centre with Conor Murray and Hanrahan forming the halfback partnership. The latter has been out of action since a hamstring injury forced him off against Leinster a fortnight ago.
Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; JJ Hanrahan, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland; Peter O’Mahony (Capt), Jack O’Donoghue, CJ Stander.
