Munster Taking Nothing For Granted

Munster include 17 of those who were included in the match day squad for last weekend’s win over Ospreys, for tomorrow’s Magners League clash with Connacht at Thomond Park Stadium (7.30).

This time around Paul Warwick, Man of the Match against Ospreys from the number 15 berth, is named at out-half with Ronan O’Gara listed among the replacements alongside his international colleagues Tomas O’Leary, Marcus Horan and David Wallace.

Ian Dowling and Doug Howlett retain their places but Barry Murphy teams up with fellow Limerickman Keith Earls in the centre while Denis Hurley takes up position at full-back. 

Meanwhile Connacht have made one change to their side for the trip to Limerick with Troy Nathan coming  into the backline to form a new centre partnership alongside Niva Ta’auso for the first time but they have yet to confirm the composition of their pack.

Munster: D Hurley; D Howlett, B Murphy, K Earls, I Dowling; P Warwick, P Stringer; F Pucciariello, D Fogarty, T Buckley; M O’Driscoll capt, D Ryan; N Williams, N Ronan, D Leamy. Replacements: M Essex, M Horan, B Holland, D Wallace, T O’Leary, R O’Gara, L Mafi.
