Three Changes For Ulster Visit.

Munster coach Tony McGahan makes three changes, from the side that started against Scarlets, for his final Thomond Park Stadium game against Ulster on Saturday night.
One of those changes is positional with Johne Murphy switching to the right wing to allow Ivan Dineen partner Lifeimi Mafi while the other change is in the front row where Wian du Preez replaces Dave Kilcoyne.

It will also be a last Thomond Park Stadium appearance for Lifeimi Mafi and for Tomas O'Leary both of whom depart these shores at season's end for pastures new.

Heineken Cup finlaists Ulster are likely to be without Ruan Pienaar, Stephen Ferris, Johann Muller and skipper Rory Best while Chris Henry is another who will not feature as he battles to be ready for the Twickenham final.

The prize for a Munster win is a trip to the Liberty a week from now for a semi final joust with Ospreys with Glasgow, home to Connact tomorrow, odds-on to provide Leinster with their warm-up opposition a week ahead of the Euro final.

Munster: F Jones; J Murphy, I Dineen, L Mafi, S Zebo; I Keatley, C Murray; W du Preez, M Sherry, BJ Botha; M O'Driscoll, P O'Connell; D Ryan, T O'Donnell, P O'Mahony. Replacements: D Varley, D Kilcoyne, S Archer, D O'Callaghan, P Butler, T O'Leary, S Deasy, K Earls.
