The news today that Ronan O'Gara's long and distinguished playing time is over, brings to a close what was by any standards, a remarkable career.
Prior to this week, the quartet mentioned were involved with Ireland A for the previous fortnight and so it remains to be seen whether Tony McGahan will consider them from the off or not against a Treviso side who will not be as badly affected by international absenteeism.
Back in the squad after a prolonged bout of injury is Denis Fogarty whose last game was against Ospreys in September, Marcus Horan whose last outing was against Toulon in October and Dave Ryan who injured a shoulder against Connacht at the end of December.
Treviso have six wins under their belts, five of those at home and their victims include Leinster, Connacht, Scarlets and Dragons.
Munster Squad: S Deasy, D Hurley, D Barnes, J Murphy, D Howlett capt, S Zebo, T Gleeson, L Mafi, S Tuitupou, D Williams, P Stringer, D Cusack, P Warwick, Darragh Hurley, Dave Ryan, P Borlase, M Horan, D Fogarty, W du Preez, S Archer, D Varley, M Sherry, Ian Nagle, M O'Driscoll, D Foley, D Ryan, B Holland, T O'Donnell, J Coughlan, P Butler, .
