In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
Other than that Munster name a largely unchanged squad from the one that saw off Toulon last week, the noticeable exception being, Marcus Horan who's ruled out through injury sustained in the gym, captain Denis Leamy who has earned a break having played in six of Munster seven games to date and Niall Ronan who has been equally as busy.
Leamy's place at number 8 goes to James Coughlan, try scorer when he came on as a replacement against Toulon and the side will be led by Ronan O'Gara.
Munster: S Deasy; D Howlett, K Earls, J Murphy, D Hurley; R O'Gara (Capt.), P Stringer; W du Preez, D Varley, J Hayes; M O'Driscoll, D Ryan; A Quinlan, D Wallace, J Coughlan. Replacements: M Sherry, Darragh Hurley, T Buckley, D O'Callaghan, P O'Mahony, D Williams, P Warwick, I Dineen
