Munster will have to topple Toulouse without the services of the talismatic Conor Murray.

The scrumhalf has failed to recover sufficiently from the shoulder injury he suffered against Wales three weeks ago. He was named in the starting XV yesterday but will not be involved in Thomond Park (kick-off 5.45pm)

Duncan Williams comes in at 9 with Angus Lloyd upgraded to the bench.

It is a major blow to Rassie Erasmus and Munster's chances of making the last four.
