Healy to make Munster debut versus Edinburgh

Munster Rugby Head Coach Johann van Graan has named his team to face Edinburgh at Irish Independent Park on Friday night in the Guinness PRO14

Stephen Archer starts on his 200th Munster appearance as the prop becomes just the 11th Munster man to reach the landmark.

Academy man Ben Healy makes his first PRO14 start at out-half. The former Nenagh Ormond and Glenstal Abbey player was a Grand Slam winner with the Ireland U20s last season and plays his All Ireland League rugby with Garryowen.

Jack O’Donoghue captains the side and is the only player retained from last week’s thrilling Champions Cup draw against Racing 92 with 11 of the starting XV products of the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy.

Shane Daly starts at full-back with Calvin Nash and Alex Wootton named on either flank.

Dan Goggin and Sammy Arnold partner up in the centres with Nick McCarthy in the half-backs alongside Healy.

Liam O’Connor, Rhys Marshall and Archer pack down in the front row with Fineen Wycherley and Darren O’Shea in the engine room.

O’Donoghue, Tommy O’Donnell and Arno Botha complete the side.
