The Munster team to face Glasgow Warriors in the Guinness PRO14 on Friday night at 7.35pm has been named by Head Coach Johann van Graan.
Jaco Taute makes a welcome return after missing almost a year of action through injury with the centre among the replacements.
Tadhg Beirne is also among the 23-man squad with the new signing in line to make his Munster debut off the bench.
Billy Holland captains a Munster side that shows one change to the starting XV that beat Cheetahs last weekend as Sammy Arnold comes in at outside centre.
Mike Haley starts at full-back with Darren Sweetnam and Academy man Shane Daly on the wings.
Rory Scannell is partnered by Arnold in the centres with the half-back pairing of Neil Cronin and JJ Hanrahan unchanged.
There are no changes to the forwards with hooker Mike Sherry packing down alongside Dave Kilcoyne and John Ryan.
Holland and Jean Kleyn are in the second row with Dave O’Callaghan, Tommy O’Donnell and Arno Botha in the back row.
Rhys Marshall, James Cronin and Stephen Archer are the front row replacements with Fineen Wycherley and Beirne completing the forward cover.
Duncan Williams, Joey Carbery and Taute are the backline replacements.
