O'Mahony starts for Munster

Munster's crucial game with Exeter starts at 5.30pm on Saturday.

There is one change to the Munster side that defeated Gloucester last weekend for Saturday’s crucial Champions Cup clash against Exeter Chiefs at Thomond Park (5.30pm).

 

Tighthead prop John Ryan replaces Stephen Archer with captain Peter O’Mahony, who came off with a rib injury against Gloucester, named in the starting XV.

 

Conor Murray makes his 50th Champions Cup appearance just over seven years on from making his competition debut against Northampton Saints in the famous 23-21 victory at Thomond Park in November 2011.

The match is completely sold-out with additional seating installed at both ends of the ground to boost the capacity of Thomond Park to 26,267.

 

Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Joey Carbery, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne; Peter O’Mahony (C), Tommy O’Donnell, CJ Stander.

Replacements: Rhys Marshall, Jeremy Loughman, Stephen Archer, Billy Holland, Arno Botha, Alby Mathewson, Tyler Bleyendaal, Dan Goggin.
