O’Gara Leads The Charge in Musgrave

Ronan O’Gara will become Munster’s most capped player when he takes the field against Cardiff Blues in Musgrave Park on Saturday.

He will be winning his 233rd competitive cap – one more than Peter Stringer – in the RaboDirect PRO12 encounter that acts as the ideal lead in to the final rounds of European Pool action.

Just four players – skipper Doug Howlett, centre James Downey scrum-half Conor Murray and flanker Tommy O'Donnell – retain their places in the Munster starting XV for the visit of Cardiff Blues to Cork (Musgrave Park 7.30)

Keith Earls returns from injury to partner James Downey in the centre while CJ Stander also returns from injury to be named on the bench

Munster: F Jones; D Howlett capt, K Earls, J Downey, J Murphy; R O’Gara, C Murray; D Kilcoyne, M Sherry, S Archer; D Foley, D Ryan; T O’Donnell, S Dougall, J Coughlan. Replacements: S Henry, W du Preez, BJ Botha, B Holland, CJ Stander, D Williams, I Keatley, C Laulala.
