All was well this morning in the Munster camp ahead of their Magners League clash with title holders Neath-Swansea Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium later this evening (4.10)
The Munster squad arrived into Cardiff Airport yesterday afternoon having flown Aer Arann from Cork and their flight arrived as scheduled at 4pm, the squad transferring to the Towers Hotel just outside Swansea.

Ospreys include all their RWC cup players with the exception of Alun Wyn Jones and all the indications are that the League champions will settle for nothing less than a five pointer from this encounter.

The Munster starting XV shows just two changes in personnel from the side that started last time out against Cardiff Blues. Brian Carney comes into the back line as Anthony Horgan misses out with a slight hamstring strain and in the pack, Alan Quinlan is named at blindside wing-forward ahead of James Coughlan who is named on a bench that includes Peter Stringer.

Munster: S Payne; B Carney, K Lewis, R Tipoki, I Dowling; P Warwick, T O'Leary; F Pucciariello, D Fogarty, T Buckley, M Melbourne, M O'Driscoll; A Quinlan, N Ronan, A Foley capt. Replacements: F Sheahan, Darragh Hurley, B Holland, J Coughlan, P Stringer, J Manning, L Mafi.

Ospreys: L Byrne; N Walker, S Parker, G Henson, S Williams; G Owen, M Phillips; D Jones, H Bennett, C Griffiths; I Gough, I Evans; J Thomas, B Lewis, F Tiatia (Capt). Replacements: B WIlliams, A Jones, L Bateman, S Tandy, M Roberts, J Hook, A Bishop.
