Munster Team For Zebre

Munster play their final game of the season tomorrow night at Stade XXV Aprile against Italian side Zebre, who are looking to finish their season on a high, claiming that elusive first ever win in the RaboDirect PRO12.

Munster, who haven't won an away game in the competition in 2013, have named a side that includes Lions player Paul O'Connell and Heineken Cup semi-final try scorer Denis Hurley.

Sean Dougall returns to a senior starting XV side for the first time since March and is joined by Dave O'Callaghan and Paddy Butler in the backrow. Ian Keatley joins Laulala in the centre partnership while JJ Hanrahan and Cathal Sheridan form the half-back pairing.

Academy player Ronan O'Mahony gets his second Rabo start while Academy prop James Cronin is named in the replacements for his potential second outing also. Cian Bohane, if called upon, will make his Rabo debut on Friday night.

Munster: D Hurley; R O'Mahony, C Laulala, I Keatley, J Murphy; JJ Hanrahan, C Sheridan, D Kilcoyne, M Sherry, J Ryan; B Holland, P O'Connell; Dave O'Callaghan, S Dougall, P Butler. Replacements: D Varley, J Cronin, BJ Botha, I Nagle, N Ronan, D Williams, C Bohane, F Jones.

Munster play Zebre at 7.45pm Italian time and the game will only be broadcast on SportItalia, and not in Ireland. Munster Rugby plan to tweet updates here.
