Minimum Changes To British & Irish Squad
11 November 2011, 10:31 am
Just one change up front for Munster's British & Irish Cup side who'll play Neath on Saturday, and one change in backs personnel as Ian Costello's side face a must-win scenario at The Gnoll if they hope to progress to the knock-out stages of this year's competition.
Mick O'Driscoll was one of their stand-out performers against Cornish Pirates in Clonmel but this weekend will travel with the senior squad to France as will Scott Deasy who kicked their points against the English side.

Dave Foley takes over from O'Driscoll while JJ Hanarahan - who started as inside centre in Clonmel - switches to number 10, in place of Deasy and will be partnered by Duncan Williams who gets the nod ahead of Peter Stringer.

Hanrahan's switch means a reshuffle of midfield with Tom Gleeson moving inside to 12 and Corey Hircock filling the outside centre berth, with Johnny Holland named in the squad for the first time in this competition.

Munster: L O'Dea; R O'Mahoney, C Hircock, T Gleeson, S Zebo; JJ Hanrahan, D Williams; D Kilcoyne, S Henry, S Archer; D Foley, I Nagle; B Holland capt, T O'Donnell, P Butler. Replacements: A Cotter, D Casey, B Hayes, B O'Hara, P Stringer, J Holland (Cork Con), D Moroney (UL Bohs).
