Four Changes for Munster
11th January 2013 By Munster Rugby
Four changes in total for Munster, from the side that started in Vicarage Road, one of those in the backs and three up front, for Sunday’s must-win Heineken Cup clash with Edinburgh at Murrayfield (12.45).
The one backline change sees Keith Earls, injured for the Sarries game, return to the starting XV in place of Casey Laulala who sits on the bench.
Up front Dave Kilcoyne and Tommy O'Donnell are others who return having missed the Vicarage Road game through illness and injury respectively, O'Donnell included at the expense of Dave O'Callaghan, and the Tipperary man will operate out of the openside berth allowing Peter O'Mahony switch to the blindside.
The other change in the pack sees Damien Varley start ahead of Mick Sherry who has recovered from an ankle injury to take his place among the replacements.
