Foley Makes Four Changes To Munster Team

Munster head coach Anthony Foley has made four changes to the team that defeated Zebre for this Sunday’s GUINNESS PRO12 round 14 clash with the Ospreys at Irish Independent Park (kick-off 5pm).

Three of those changes come in the pack with Dave Kilcoyne and Mike Sherry returning to the front row alongside John Ryan who remains at tighthead prop.

Dave Foley partners Mark Chisholm in an unchanged second row, while flanker Dave O’Callaghan makes his first start since returning from an adductor injury. Billy Holland remains as captain and blindside flanker, with Jack O’Donoghue making the positional switch to number 8 for the first time this season.

The only change across the back-line comes at scrum half where Duncan Williams returns to partner Ian Keatley at half-back.

Rory Scannell and Francis Saili form the centre partnership for the seventh consecutive game, while wingers Ronan O’Mahony and Darren Sweetnam and full-back Andrew Conway all retaining their starting places.

Development prop and a product of the Munster clubs pathway, Peter McCabe, is included in his first PRO12 squad after being named among the replacements.
