No influx of World cup stars for Munster but Anthony Foley's side have flourished in the big names' absence with four wins from four this season.

Foley makes eight changes to the side that saw off Cardiff last week.

Jordan Coghlan makes his first competitive start for Munster while Ronan O'Mahony is included in a match-day squad for the first time this season.

Uruguayan prop Mario Sagario signed a three-month contract this week but is not included in tonight's 23 for Parc y Scarlets.

Wales World cup players Ken Owens, Samson Lee and Jake Ball are named in the Scarlets' starting team with Gareth Davies on the bench.

The Scarlets look more likely to maintain their winning run.

Verdict: Scarlets
