Three Changes for Munster as Foley Set for 200th Cap

Munster coach Declan Kidney makes just three changes in personnel, from the side that accounted for Ospreys 9-8 last time out in the Magners League, forthe game against Ulster in Ravenhill tomorrow evening.

The one backline change sees Peter Stringer return to the starting fifteen where he will partner Paul Warwick, while up front there are four changes, two positional.  With Donncha O’Callaghan omitted along with all those who started against Saracens last Sunday, Donnacha Ryan slots into the second-row alongside Mick O’Driscoll.

John O’Sullivan who wore the number seven jersey so impressively against the Ospreys swiches to the blinside with Niall Ronan –  forced out last time with a back strain – returning to the openside.

The side will be led at number 8 by Anthony Foley who will create history by becoming the first player to win 200 caps for his province.

Munster: S Payne; B Carney, B Murphy, K Lewis, A Horgan; P Warwick, P Stringer; F Pucciariello, F Sheahan, T Buckley; D Ryan, M O’Driscoll; J O’Sullivan, N Ronan, A Foley capt.  Replacements: S Cronin, D Hurley, M Melbourne, J Coughlan, G Hurley, J Manning, K Earls.
