Retired Munster Rugby captain and former All Black Doug Howlett is back on board with the province as a Corporate Ambassador.
Friday night should see the return of Ian Nagle who was a late withdrawal from the New Year's Day squad v Ulster due to illness.
The Nottingham pack is expected to include All Blacks lock Ali Williams who is on a one month stint with the East Midlands Club, seeking game time after an Achilles tendon injury before rejoining his club side, the Blues in Auckland.
