Munster will set out to defend their title in a winner takes all showdown against an experienced Leinster side that also remain undefeated in this year’s championship.

UL Bohemian’s Claire Keohane continues at full-back to replace her club colleague Niamh Briggs who sustained an injury during Munster’s opening game against Connacht.

Gill Bourke, UL Bohemian, will start at hooker in place of Kate Sheehan, also from UL Bohemian, who is named on the bench.

Highfield’s Amy O’Callaghan comes into the squad in place of the injured Aine Staunton from UL Bohemian.
