Despite having played a game less, Munster 'A' are in total control of their British and Irish Cup pool and a win in Doncaster this afternoon (2.30) would really cement their place at the top.

An exciting, young backline starts against the Championship side with David Johnston, Calvin Nash, Sam Arnold, Dan Goggin and Greg O'Shea all included.

Peter Malone has named the experienced Robin Copeland as captain while Dave O'Callaghan and Kevin O'Byrne also start in a bid to get more game time under their belts following spells out injured.

Having impressed for a Munster Development XV against Ireland U-20 recently, Ronan Coffey and Bailey Faloon are included in a B&I Cup squad for the first time.

Doncaster are without a point thus far and Munster will be confident of maintaining their 100pc record.

Munster 'A' - D Johnston; C Nash, S Arnold, D Goggin, G O'Shea; Te Aihe Toma, J Poland; P McCabe, K O'Byrne, B Scott; F Wycherley, E Mintern; D O'Callaghan, G Coombes, R Copeland (capt). Reps: V O'Brien, L O'Connor, R Burke, R Coffey, B Faloon, C Bohane, S Fitzgerald.
