Paul O'Connell, Peter O'Mahony, Conor Murray and Tommy O'Donnell all return to the side after helping Ireland to the Six Nations Championship.

Ian Keatley, man-of-the-match when Munster beat Leinster 19-15 at Thomond Park in October, returns to the side to partner Murray at half-back.

Denis Hurley comes in to partner Casey Laulala in the centres, with Keith Earls and Simon Zebo named on the wings.

O’Connell is a welcome addition to the team after missing  the Treviso clash with a slight shoulder niggle, with props Dave Kilcoyne and BJ Botha are both drafted into the side to join hooker Damien Varley in the front-row.

O’Connell  joins Dave Foley in the second-row with captain O'Mahony coming into a back-row that also includes O'Donnell and James Coughlan.

Munster team to play Leinster: Felix Jones; Keith Earls, Casey Laulala, Denis Hurley, Simon Zebo; Ian Keatley, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Damien Varley, BJ Botha; Dave Foley, Paul O' Connell; Peter O'Mahony(Capt), Tommy O'Donnell, James Coughlan.

Replacements: Duncan Casey, James Cronin, Alan Cotter, Donncha O'Callaghan, CJ Stander, Duncan Williams, JJ Hanrahan, Gerhard van den Heever.
