Snyman and Beirne start together as Munster name team for Glasgow

Beirne makes his first Munster appearance since January after recovering from an ankle injury sustained in February during the 6 Nations.

The Munster team has been named for Saturday’s URC quarter-final against Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun (7.35pm, live on RTÉ & Premier Sports).

There are two changes to the side that drew with Sharks in Durban two weeks ago as Munster look to become the first visiting team to win at Scotstoun this season.

Both switches are in the pack as RG Snyman comes into the second row and Tadhg Beirne starts at blindside flanker.
