Six changes are made for tomorrow night’s away trip to Glasgow Warriors in round 10 of the Guinness PRO12. Returning international Peter O’Mahony comes back in to captain the side with Tommy O’Donnell in line to make his 100th PRO12 appearance.
Tipperary native and product of the Greencore Munster Academy, O’Donnell, made his Championship debut off the bench against Scarlets in September 2007.
Four personnel changes are seen in the pack. Niall Scannell returns at hooker, Jean Kleyn and Billy Holland start in the second row and O’Mahony comes back in at 6. The Munster captain’s return sees Jack O’Donoghue make the positional switch to number 8.
The final two personnel changes are made in the half backs and midfield with Ian Keatley and Rory Scannell starting at out half and inside centre respectively. Consequently Jaco Taute reverts to outside centre.
Named among the replacements, Donnacha Ryan is another to make a return from international action while scrum half Te Aihe Toma could make his competitive debut for the province.
Munster XV: Andrew Conway; Darren Sweetnam, Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Ronan O’Mahony; Ian Keatley, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan, Jean Kleyn, Bill Holland; Peter O’Mahony – capt., Tommy O’Donnell, Jack O’Donoghue.
