Munster have made nine changes, including two positional, from the side that started against Leinster, for Sunday's Magners League clash with Connacht (Sportsground 4pm).
One of those positional changes sees Christian Cullen come into the full-back berth with Shaun Payne switching to the right wing while Federico Pucciariello, who started at loose-head prop against Leinster switches to the tight to accomodate the inclusion of Darragh Hurley.

In a much altered backline, Tomas O'Leary comes into the side on the wing, Jeremy Manning partners Peter Stringer at half back while Lifeimi Mafi is selected at inside centre.

Up front Chris Wyatt gets to partner Donncha O'Callaghan, James Coughlan will operate at number 8 and after his impressive display against Leinster, no surprise that John O'Sullivan remains at number six.

Munster: C Cullen; T O'Leary, B Murphy, L Mafi, S Payne; J Manning, P Stringer; D Hurley, F Sheahan, F Pucciariello; D O'Callaghan, C Wyatt; J O'Sullivan, D Wallace, J Coughlan' Replacements: A Kyriacou, J Hayes, P O'Connell, D Leamy, R O'Gara, T Halstead, J Kelly
