Ian Costello has, however, left one other position to be finalised as he waits to see if Luke O'Dea, the scorer of a cracking try in the semi-final victory over Leinster 'A', is fit enough to make the starting line-up.

Up front Costello opts for the experience of Stephen Archer over John Ryan in the front row, while a return to fitness sees flanker David O'Callaghan preferred to Barry O'Mahony who is named on the bench.

The half-backs remain in place but Ivan Dineen gets moved from the wing to inside centre at the expense of JJ Hanrahan, while Denis Hurley fills the left wing berth occupied by Dineen so ably in the semi-final.

Ten of the province's starters were involved in the inaugural British & Irish Cup final back in 2010 when Munster 'A' were beaten 23-14 by Cornish Pirates.

Friday's decider against Welsh side Cross Keys will be broadcast live on Sky Sports 2. Tickets for the game can be purchased here.

MUNSTER 'A' (v Cross Keys): Sean Scanlon; AN Other, Danny Barnes, Ivan Dineen, Denis Hurley; Scott Deasy, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilcoyne, Sean Henry, Stephen Archer, Brian Hayes, Ian Nagle, Billy Holland (capt), David O'Callaghan, Paddy Butler.

Replacements: Denis Fogarty, John Ryan, Barry O'Mahony, Brian O'Hara, Gerry Hurley, Declan Cusack, JJ Hanrahan.
