James Coughlan will lead Munster A, in their final before the start of the B&I Cup, when they take on Ulster in Musgrave Park on Friday afternoon (2pm).
The side shows just five changes, three in the backs and two up front, from the one that saw off Leinster 21-15 last time out in Clonmel RFC.

Ian Nagle - injured on that occasion - returns to partner Dave Foley in the second row while the experienced Damien Varley comes into the front row in place of Mike Sherry who's named on the bench.

In the backs, injury rules Duncan Williams out and Paul Rowley steps up to partner Declan Cusack while coach Anthony Foley can call on senior international Denis Hurley and A international Felix Jones to replace Danny Barnes and Ronan O'Mahony respectively.

O'Mahony is named on the bench and Barnes will be on duty tomorrow for the Munster Academy when they take on the Ireland U20s in Athlone.

Munster A: Danny Riordan; Felix Jones,Tom Gleeson, Scott Deasy, Denis Hurley; Declan Cusack, Paul Rowley; Dave Kilcoyne, Damian Varley, Stephen Archer; Ian Nagle, Dave Foley; Billy Holland, Tommy O'Donnell, James Coughlan capt Replacements: Mike Sherry, Christy Condon, Kieran Essex, Pater O'Mahony, Conor Murray, Ronan O'Mahony, Eric Maloney.
