There's a decidedly fresh look to the Munster selection for tomorrow's Magners League game against Newport Gwent Dragons (Musgrave Park 7.30) and particularly so at half back where 21 year old Conor Murray makes his first senior start alongside Declan Cusack.
For his part, Cusack's only other start was against Connacht around this time last year and the Garryowen pair are joined in the starting XV by 22 year old Ian Nagle in the second row and Simon Zebo who will be 21 later this month.

There's loads of experience in the side including a return to the starting XV for Marcus Horan and Denis Fogarty while the bench looks particularly strong althioyugh still catering for youth in the shape of 21 year old Danny Barnes.

Munster: J Murphy, D Howlett, L Mafi, P Warwick, S Zebo, D Cusack, C Murray, M Horan, D Fogarty, S Archer, I Nagle, M O'Driscoll capt; D Ryan, J Coughlan, D Leamy. Replacements: D Varley, W du Preez, T Buckley, A Quinlan, T O'Donnell, P Stringer, S Tuitupou, D Barnes.
