Munster have made five changes ahead of the visit of Castres to Thomond Park on Saturday evening. Ben Healy starts at out-half in place of the injured Joey Carbery while Niall Scannell, John Ryan, Jean Kleyn and Jack O’Donoghue return to the Munster pack.
19-year-old academy star Patrick Campbell retains the number 15 jersey following an impressive try scoring debut against Wasps last week. There is another slew of Munster players set to make European debuts with Hooker Diarmuid Barron, prop Keynan Knox, out-half Jack Crowley and Academy back-row forward Alex Kendellen all ready to go.
South African Jason Jenkins is named in a matchday squad for the first time and set for his Munster debut after joining the province last summer.
Dave Kilcoyne, Scannell and Ryan pack down in the front row with Kleyn and Tadhg Beirne forming the second row combination. Peter O’Mahony, John Hodnett and O’Donoghue complete the pack.
Conor Murray and Healy are in the half-backs with Damian de Allende and Chris Farrell continuing their centre partnership.
Johann van Graan has gone with the back three of Campbell, Keith Earls and Andrew Conway.
