Rob Henderson makes a welcome return to the Munster side named today for Saturday’s Celtic League Final encounter with Neath at the Millenium Stadium.

Henderson’s inclusion is the only change in the squad that accounted for English giants Gloucester a fortnight ago. He takes his place on the bench at the expense of Colm McMahon.

This was announced today at a joint press conference at the Millenium Stadium where Celtic League Chairman, Phil Watson informed the media that a crowd of up to 40,000 is expected. He went on to say that a decision on whether the roof would or would not be open will depend on the weather conditions, with the expectation that if it were fine, the roof would remain open.

Munster Team to Face Neath:

J Staunton,J Kelly;M Mullins, J Holland, M Lawlor; Ronan O’ Gara, P Stringer; M Horan, F Sheehan, J Hayes; M O’ Driscoll, B O’ Callaghan; J Williams (capt), A Quinlan, A Foley; Replacements: J Blainey, M Cahill, M Galwey, B Leamy, M Prendergast, K Keane, R Henderson.
