Denis Hurley, who impressed at full-back last weekend against Edinburgh, has made the cut as has the latest addition to the province's set-up, former New Zealand Maori back rower Jake Paringatai.
The notable absentee is Paul O'Connell who is still hindered by a back disc problem. The Munster team and replacements will not be confirmed until Friday lunchtime.
Looking ahead for Saturday's meeting of the Heineken Cup's two most recent champions, Anthony Foley said: "Itâ00s a massive game for us against obviously the reigning champions, playing them away from home. They seem to be hitting form at the moment with a good win over Gloucester and I imagine they are licking their lips at us coming over.
"We enjoy a backs-to-the-wall game and we will have good support in Coventry, it is just about us putting in a performance they can get behind and trying to impose our game on them."
