Rassie Erasmus makes three changes as Munster chase Champions League home comforts
Rassie Erasmus has made three changes as Munster look for a win against Racing 92 that would guarantee them a home draw in the last eight of the Champions Cup.
Tommy O'Donnell, James Cronin and Ronan O'Mahony all come into the starting 15 for tomorrow's sold-out clash at Thomond Park (kick off 5.30).
O'Donnell returns from injury to start as Jack O'Donoghue moves to the bench and Cronin is given the nod at loose-head prop with Dave Kilcoyne moving to the replacements.
O'Mahony, Munster's top try-scorer so far this season, takes the place of Keith Earls in the only change to the backline with the Moyross man not included after taking a knock to his ribs in training earlier this week.
Munster: Simon Zebo; Andrew Conway, Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Ronan O'Mahony; Tyler Bleyendaal, Conor Murray; James Cronin, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Donnacha Ryan; Peter O'Mahony (Capt), Tommy O'Donnell, CJ Stander.
Replacements: Rhys Marshall, Dave Kilcoyne, Thomas du Toit, Billy Holland, Jack O'Donoghue, Duncan Williams, Ian Keatley, Francis Saili.
