Mike Sherry named captain as van Graan rings the changes for Ulster clash

Mike Sherry and James Cronin will both earn their 100th as Munster welcome Ulster to Thomond Park on Saturday with Sherry captaining the side for the first time since 2013.

It is an almost entirely changed side from that which lost out to Racing 92 in the Champions Cup semi-final last weekend.

Only Young Player of the Year Sammy Arnold keeps his place in the side and is joined in midfield by Dan Goggin.

Duncan Williams returns from injury to partner JJ Hanrahan in the half-back line.

Meanwhile Ulster have also named their team for the weekend’s clash. Rory Best returns to captain the side who need to earn a bonus point win while also relying on other results, if they are to earn a play-off spot.

Kick off on Saturday in Thomond Park is 5.35pm
