The Munster squad of 22 for Sunday’s Magners League clash with Leinster at the RDS (kick-off 7pm) shows six changes to the panel of players for last weekend’s win over the Cardiff Blues.
Keith Earls returns in place of Denis Hurley and Paul Warwick gets the nod over Jeremy Manning in the only changes to the backs.
Up front, Frankie Sheahan comes in in place of Denis Fogarty, Marcus Horan and Donncha O’Callaghan replace Tony Buckley and Mick O’Driscoll respectively, while David Wallace also returns with Niall Ronan making way for the 47-times capped Ireland international.
Munster will announce their starting line-up and replacements on Friday after their morning training session and the squad will travel to Dublin on Saturday afternoon.
