WATCH: Van Graan on selection headaches and Edinburgh clash

Munster are looking for their fifth win on the bounce when they welcome Edinburgh to Musgrave Park tomorrow evening in Round 10 of this season’s Pro14.

Head Coach Johann van Graan has made 11 changes from the team that beat Zebre last weekend and said he welcomes the selection headaches that come with players returning from injury and the form of some of the younger players in his squad.

“It’s great to have a lot of backs available at this stage. It’s the first time in a year that we have more than three centres available. Obviously, Dan Goggin has still to come back but Jaco (Taute), Chris (Farrell), Rory (Scannell) and Sammy (Arnold).

“The young guys pushing in behind, Shane Daly, Matt More and Alex McHenry. It’s great to have depth in the squad. All the guys can’t play all of the nine next games so we will have take it week by week and adjust our strategy accordingly.”
