Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations match in February, while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
Bowen was a central figure in the 19-12 victory at Thomond last season, the match in which Munster lost their six-year unbeaten record at the ground.
"Munster have a great tradition at Thomond Park and with their internationals back we know we will see them in their true guise," said Jenkins. "We have to create an environment to put them under pressure. We need a positive scrum, aggressive line-out, a stubborn tackling game and enough flair in our own play."
Last week's win 37-16 win over Edinburgh was the first indication that the Scarlets of last season are back. They had averaged 40 passes through the hand in their previous fixtures against The Ospreys and The Dragons, but upped that to 120 against the Scotsmen. Their speed through the contact area was also much improved.Assistant coach Nigel Davies said We still have a lot of areas in which we need to improve, but until we play an improved game as we did on Saturday night, it's difficult to see where the deficiency we've been playing with lies.
