Four Changes For Magners Opener.
9 September 2010, 8:45 am
Munster coach Tony McGahan has made four changes, one positional, for their Magners League opener against Aironi Rugby in Musgrave Park on Saturday (7.30pm).
All those changes are confined to the forward pack and in particular to the back five with Mick O'Driscoll partrnering Billy Holland in the second row which means a switch to blind-side wing-forward for Donnacha Ryan at the expense of Alan Quinlan - who's named on the bench - and Niall Ronan, a 45th minute replacement last weekend for Tommy O'Donnell, retained at open-side.

Included among the replacements for the first time are Irish internationals John Hayes and Marcus Horan. Denis Leamy captains the side as he has done for the opening two games.

Munster: F Jones; D Howlett, J Murphy, S Tuitupou, I Dowling; P Warwick, P Stringer; W du Preez, D Varley, T Buckley, M O'Driscoll, B Holland; D Ryan, N Ronan, D Leamy capt. Replacements: D Fogarty, M Horan, J Hayes, A Quinlan, P O'Mahony, D Williams, S Deasy, D Barnes
