Hanrahan to make league debut for Munster

RISING star JJ Hanrahan will make his first senior start for Munster when Italian side Zebre visit Thomond Park in the RaboDirect PRO12 tomorrow night

The 20-year-old has been named as inside centre partner to Casey Laulala.

Tomorrow’s Munster team shows nine changes from the one that started last Sunday against Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup.

One of those changes is positional with Donnacha Ryan moving from blindside to lock in place of Paul O'Connell, while five others, including Hanrahan, were involved off the bench last weekend.

Felix Jones will start ahead of Denis Hurley at full-back, with Duncan Williams for Conor Murray at scrum-half.

Stephen Archer replaces BJ Botha in the pack and Paddy Butler now wears the number 8 jersey with Peter O'Mahony moving to blindside.

Munster: Felix Jones; Luke O'Dea, Casey Laulala, JJ Hanrahan, Simon Zebo; Ian Keatley, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilcoyne, Mike Sherry, Stephen Archer; Donncha O'Callaghan, Donncha Ryan; Dave O'Callaghan, Peter O'Mahony, Paddy Butler.
