The Munster side has been named for Saturday’s URC Grand Final against Stormers at the DHL Stadium (/5.30pm Irish).

The pack is unchanged with Captain Peter O’Mahony joined by John Hodnett and Gavin Coombes in the back row.
Jeremy Loughman, Diarmuid Barron and Stephen Archer pack down in the front row while Jean Kleyn and Tadhg Beirne start in the engine room.
RG Snyman joins the squad as a replacement.
