MUNSTER’S Simon Zebo will start his first Heineken Cup game against Scarlets at Parc Y Scarlets tomorrow.

In all, there are four changes in the backline. Doug Howlett's long-term injury sees Zebo coming into the side on the left wing to make his debut in the competition.

Zebo overcame an ankle injury scare during the week.

And there are also several changes to the Leinster side that beat Glasgow Warriors in the previous round for Sunday's Heineken Cup tie away to Bath.

Fergus McFadden is named at outside centre alongside Gordon D'Arcy and Damian Browne makes his second start in the Heineken Cup this season.

Meanwhile, Connacht forward Mike McCarthy has been named in the starting team to face Gloucester in their Heineken Cup Pool Six clash tomorrow.

McCarthy is available after serving a suspension for a high tackle in the game with Toulouse in round two.
