Paul O’Connell will win his 100th competitive Munster cap when he leads the side out this evening for the crucial Heineken Cup round 5 tie with Sale Sharks at a full house Thomond Park Stadium.

A win for both sides is really a must if they are to continue to entertain hopes of advancing to the knock-out stages while Clermont Auvergne (home to Montauban) cannot be ruled out of the equation although with a final round trip to Sale theirs is the most dificult route.

SALE SHARKS : M Cueto; C Bell, A Tuilagi, L McAlister, D Doherty; C Hodgson, R Wigglesworth; L Faure, M Jones, E Lewis-Roberts, S Chabal, D Schofield, C Jones, N Briggs, J Fernandez, Lobbe (capt). Replacements: S Turner, A Sheridan, B Cockbain, C Fearns, D Peel, R Keil, M Tait.
