Warwick At Out-Half To Face Former Side

Munster have named 17 of the players included in the matchday squad for last weekend’s win over Ospreys, for Saturday’s Magners League derby clash with Connacht at Thomond Park Stadium (kick-off 7.30pm).

This time around Paul Warwick, man-of-the-match against the Ospreys from the full-back berth, has been named at out-half as he lines up against his former team Connacht.

Ronan O’Gara will provide back-up amongst the replacements alongside his Grand Slam colleagues Tomas O’Leary, Marcus Horan and David Wallace.
