The Munster team has been named for Saturday’s URC Round 17 clash against Stormers at DHL Stadium in Cape Town (5.15pm Irish time/6.15pm local – live on RTÉ & Premier Sports).
There are five changes to the side that were beaten by Sharks in Durban two weeks ago.
Loosehead prop Jeremy Loughman has recovered from a thigh injury and makes his first appearance since December in an all-changed front row.
Hooker Diarmuid Barron and tighthead prop Stephen Archer also come into the pack along with flanker Alex Kendellen.
There is one change to the backline as Conor Murray starts at scrum-half.
RG Snyman makes his second start in-a-row and his first URC start since his Munster debut in August 2020.
Mike Haley starts at full-back with Calvin Nash, who made his 50th appearance last time out, and Shane Daly on either flank.
Malakai Fekitoa and Antoine Frisch continue their centre partnership with Murray and Jack Crowley in the half-backs.
Loughman, Barron and Archer pack down in the front row with Jean Kleyn and Snyman in the engine room.
Captain Peter O’Mahony, Kendellen and Gavin Coombes complete the starting XV.
Scott Buckley, Keynan Knox, Ben Healy and Keith Earls come into the squad as replacements.
Earls is in line for his 199th Munster appearance and his first since the win in Ulster on New Year’s Day after recovering from a calf injury.
On the injury front, Dave Kilcoyne was not available for selection this week.
