And likewise, Nottingham coach Glenn Delaney has named a young side for this fixture, due to a heavy league schedule.
Both sides are unbeaten after two games with Munster one point ahead thanks to that bonus point win in Coventry and if anything Nottingham have the easier run in with games remaining against Bristol and Coventry while Munster's next outing is against Neath at The Gnoll.
Peter O'Mahony leads Munster tonight as he did so impressively against Connacht last week and the return of Ian Nagle and the presence of the likes of Danny Riordan, Ciaran O'Boyle, Danny Barnes and Stepehen Archer will complement the burgeoning talent that Foley and Costello has assembled.
The visitors have nineteen year old, dual-registered Matt Everard, in their starting line-up after sitting on the bench against Bristol on Sunday while Dave Marshall comes in at fly half.
Greig Tonks moves to inside centre for the match up and Dan Hemingway returns to a pack that has an experienced front row in hooker Greg Sammons and tight-head prop Ben Buxton who both played with Leicester Tigers and loose-head Peter Cook who spent time with Harlequins.
