13/04/02.International David Wallace and his Munster colleague Killian Keane will be on the bench for Garryowen while John Kelly will start in reserve when the sides meet in Temple Hill.

Garryowen retain 14 of the starting line up that saw off UCD in their last outing against UCD with Australian John Langford coming into the side having returned to this country last Monday.

Cork Constitution will start favourites even though they could only manage a draw against the Dooradoyle outfit at this venue in February. Regular wing Derek Dillon retains his place in a backline that sees brothers Cian and Conor Mahony in the centre with Brian O’Meara and Ronan O’Gara at half back. In the pack Frank Sheahan is in the middle of the front row.
