Rassie Erasmus has named his 23 man squad for Munster V Cheetahs.
Munster welcome the Cheetahs to Thomond Park tomorrow evening at 5:15 and Erasmus has made just one change to his starting 15 that beat Benneton Treviso last weekend. Tyler Bleyendaal is out of the squad completely with Ian Keatley coming in as his replacement.
Billy Holland will take over the captains armband for the game. Staying in the pack, academy duo, Liam and Sean O’Connor will keep their places at loosehead and blindside flanker respectively, after impressive performances last Friday.
Erasmus has made a number of changes to his replacements with a total of five Irish Internationals returning. Niall Scannell, Dave Kilcoyne, John Ryan, Rory Scannell and Simon Zebo all come into the side as substitutes and are likely to make an appearance for the Province.
It will be an extra special day for Munster’s fullback Andrew Conway as he is set to make his 100th appearnce in the Pro 14. It could also be a special day for tighthead replacement Dave Kilcoyne as he too will make his 100th Pro 14 appearance should he be introduced at some stage.
