MUNSTER head coach Anthony Foley makes four changes to the side that defeated Zebre last time out for this Sunday's Guinness PRO12 Round 14 clash against Ospreys at Musgrave Park, 5pm.
Three of those changes are seen in the pack with Dave Kilcoyne and Mike Sherry returning to the front row alongside John Ryan who remains at tighthead.
The second row is unchanged with Dave Foley again partnering Mark Chisholm while Dave O'Callaghan makes his first start since returning from an adductor injury at openside. Billy Holland remains as captain and blindside flanker with Jack O'Donoghue making the positional switch to number 8 for the first time this season.
The only change across the backline comes at scrum half with Duncan Williams returning to partner Ian Keatley in the half-backs.
Rory Scannell and Francis Saili form the centre partnership for the seventh consecutive game with wingers Ronan O'Mahony and Darren Sweetnam and full-back Andrew Conway all retaining their starting positions.
Development prop and product of the Munster Clubs pathway Peter McCabe is included in his first PRO12 squad after being named amongst the replacements.
Sunday’s game is live on TG4.
