Munster trained in the sunshine at UL yesterday, ahead of Saturday evening's crucial derby away to Connacht in the RaboDirect PRO12.
Williams is recovering from a slight groin strain but is expected to be involved in the game next week against London Wasps, along with Howlett and Botha.
The issue with Williams plus the absence of Tomas O'Leary and Conor Murray necessiatated the inclusion of Gerry Hurley and the Cork Con scrum-half starts tomorrow night outside Garryowen's Declan Cusack.
There's a familiar enough look to the pack with the exception of Dave O'Callaghan who is named at blindside wing-forward.
Munster: Johne Murphy; Denis Hurley, Danny Barnes, Scott Deasy, Simon Zebo; Declan Cusack, Gerry Hurley; Wian du Preez, Damien Varley, Stephen Archer; Billy Holland, Mick O'Driscoll; Dave O'Callaghan, Tommy O'Donnell, James Coughlan
