There are three changes to the side that started the Guinness PRO14 final as Jack O’Donoghue, Stephen Archer and David Kilcoyne all come into the pack. O’Donoghue is joined by CJ Stander and Gavin Coombes in the backrow who look to continue their excellent form.

Fineen Wycherley has recovered from the neck injury he suffered against Scarlets and is fit enough to make the bench. Head coach Van Graan has opted for a 6/2 split with his substitutes as flanker Chris Cloete occupies the number 23 jersey.

CJ Stander captains the team on what will be his fiftieth European cup cap for Munster.

Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Damian de Allende, Keith Earls; Joey Carbery, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne; Gavin Coombes, Jack O’Donoghue, CJ Stander (c).

Replacements: Kevin O’Byrne, James Cronin, John Ryan, Billy Holland, Fineen Wycherley, Craig Casey, JJ Hanrahan, Chris Cloete.
