Those players – BJ Botha, Marcus Horan, Ian Nagle – who missed last weekend’s win in Cardiff, thru either injury or illness, return to the Munster squad ahead of Friday’s Murrayfield clash with Edinburgh.
Also added are Simon Zebo, Paddy Butler and Dave O’Callaghan while James Coughlan and skipper Peter O’Mahony, who both retired injured in the course of Friday’s Cardiff game, are also included in the 29 strong squad.
Botha suffered a calf strain in training in the run up to the Cardiff game while Horan succumbed to a bout of illness. Nagle has been out of action after sustaining a shoulder injury in the pre-season game against London Irish in Thomond Park Stadium in late August.
