The Munster team has been named for Sunday’s Champions Cup opener against Top 14 leaders Toulouse at Thomond Park (3.15pm).
A bumper crowd will attend with match tickets available here.
There is one change to the side that secured a bonus-point win in Edinburgh as Mike Haley comes back into the team at full-back with Shane Daly moving to the wing.
Peter O’Mahony captains Munster and John Ryan starts on his 50th Champions Cup appearance in the all Irish-qualified 23-man squad.
Haley, Calvin Nash and Daly form the back three with an unchanged centre partnership of Rory Scannell and Antoine Frisch, who makes his first Champions Cup appearance for Munster.
Craig Casey, who makes his first start in the Champions Cup, and Joey Carbery continue in the half-backs with the forwards all remaining in situ.
Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell and Ryan start in the front row with Jean Kleyn and Tadhg Beirne in the engine room.
O’Mahony, John Hodnett and Gavin Coombes complete the side.
Scrum-half Paddy Patterson is included among the replacements and in line to make his Champions Cup debut.
Keith Earls is also named in the squad and set to make his second appearance of the season. Earls returned to training last month after recovering from a thigh injury sustained in September.
On the injury front, Greencore Munster Rugby Academy lock Edwin Edogbo has sustained an ankle injury that rules him out for at least six to seven weeks.
