Christian Cullen and Ian Dowling have recovered from the mild knocks that kept them out of last weekend’s action against Border Reivers while Anthony Horgan, Alan Quinlan, Mick O’Driscoll and Anthony Foley are also included in the Munster squad for this weekend’s Magners League clash with Glasgow Warriors at Hughenden (Friday 7.30pm – Setanta).
And while Munster coach Declan Kidney will welcome the experience the additions will bring it does mean that he is facing a few hard selection decisions.
Last weekends performance was hugely encouraging and very important in the context of the whole season. It has certainly put it up to any returning player. I suppose we have to get the balance right now between being fair to lads who did so well and, given that it s a six day turnaround, freshening up the side for what will be a huge game.
Remember we played them (Glasgow) twice last year and didn t manage to get a point so on their home patch they wont have any fears of us at all.
The Warriors opened their Magners League campaign with a 24-23 home defeat to Newport Gwent Dragons and last time out suffered a 31-17 reversal to Llanelli Scarlets at Stradey Park so motivation will not be a factor for the Scottish side.
Shaun Payne, Christian Cullen, Denis Hurley, Mossy Lawlor, Ian Dowling, Tom Gleeson, John Kelly, James Downey, Anthony Horgan, Eoghan Hickey, Jeremy Manning, Tomas O Leary, Gerry Hurley.
