Munster 'A' have it all to do if they are to get their British and Irish Cup campaign back on track as they welcome an in-form Yorkshire Carnegie to Kinsale.

Munster were narrowly beaten (27-25) by London Scottish last week and another defeat tonight (8.0) would leave them facing a uphill task to get out of the pool.

Argentinian international winger Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino will make his first appearance for Munster 'A' after making his senior debut against Treviso last week.

Out-half Rory Scannell also featured against the Italians and he takes over the captaincy from his brother Niall.

Up front, John Ryan and Kevin O'Byrne come into the front-row alongside Mario Sagario who represented Uruguay at the World Cup.

Yorkshire Carnegie got off to a flying start in their bonus-point win last week and they have handed a first start to former Rugby League star Kevin Sinfield, who is named at out-half.

Verdict: Yorkshire Carnegie

Munster 'A' - D Johnston; L Amorosino, M D'Arcy, C Bohane, R O'Mahony; R Scannell (capt), C Sheridan; J Ryan, K O'Byrne, M Sagario; S McCarthy, B Holland; J Coghlan, S Doyle, S Buckley. Reps: E Rossiter, L O'Connor, S O'Connor, C Oliver, D Williams, B Johnston, D Sweetnam.
