Munster (v Ulster) Selection

Guinness PRO12 Editor

4 May 2012


Munster coach Tony McGahan, in charge for his last game at Thomond Park Stadium, has made three changes, from the Scarlets game, for the visit of Ulster tomorrow night.

One of those changes is positional with Johne Murphy switching to the right wing to allow Ivan Dineen partner Lifeimi Mafi while the other change is in the front row where Wian du Preez replaces Dave Kilcoyne.

Dineen gets his chance as Keith Earls recovery from injury prevented him taking a full part in training this week. Earls is named on the bench

It will also be a last Thomond Park Stadium appearance for Lifeimi Mafi and for Tomas O'Leary both of whom depart these shores at season's end for pastures new.

The prize for a Munster win is a trip to the Liberty a week from now for a semi final joust with Ospreys with Glasgow, home to Connact tomorrow, odds-on to provide Leinster with their warm-up opposition a week ahead of the Euro final.

Munster: F Jones; J Murphy, I Dineen, L Mafi, S Zebo; I Keatley, C Murray; W du Preez, M Sherry, BJ Botha; M O'Driscoll, P O'Connell; D Ryan, T O'Donnell, P O'Mahony. Replacements: D Varley, D Kilcoyne, S Archer, D O'Callaghan, P Butler, T O'Leary, S Deasy, K Earls.
