Peter O'Mahony is fit to start Munster's Champions Cup clash against Exeter Chiefs at Thomond Park tomorrow.

Munster coach Johann van Graan had rated his skipper 50-50 to feature in what is effectively a quarter-final shoot-out with so his inclusion is welcome news for Munster fans.

O'Mahony suffered a popped rib early in the second half of last Friday's defeat of Gloucester.

There is just one change for Munster with John Ryan replacing Stephen Archer.

Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Joey Carbery, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne; Peter O’Mahony (C), Tommy O’Donnell, CJ Stander.

Replacements: Rhys Marshall, Jeremy Loughman, Stephen Archer, Billy Holland, Arno Botha, Alby Mathewson, Tyler Bleyendaal, Dan Goggin.
