JACK Crowley will make his 50th appearance for Munster in Saturday’s URC inter-provincial derby outing with Connacht at Thomond Park, 5.15pm.

The 24-year-old lines out at out-half.

There are two changes to the side that beat Lions in Johannesburg last time out as Craig Casey and Alex Nankivell come into the backline.

On the injury front, Josh Wycherley was unavailable for selection as he continues to follow the graduated return to play protocols. Josh has also seen a specialist regarding a facial injury and will be unavailable for a number of weeks.

The fixture is set to attract over 20,000 supporters.
