Munster boss Rassie Erasmus has made four changes to his side for tomorrow's Champions Cup clash against Glasgow Warriors.

Keith Earls has been selected to start on the wing with Andrew Conway and Simon Zebo also in the back three.

Dave Kilcoyne comes into the front row in place of James Cronin with Niall Scannell and John Ryan continuing at hooker and tight-head respectively.

Jean Kleyn joins Donnacha Ryan in the second row to make his first European start for the province while Jack O'Donoghue starts in the back row in place of the injured Tommy O'Donnell.

"Tommy O'Donnell, who sustained an ankle sprain against Racing 92 will continue to be observed by the medical team, however it is hoped the injury will only require a short-term rehab," read a Munster statement.

Munster: Simon Zebo; Andrew Conway, Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Tyler Bleyendaal, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Donnacha Ryan; Peter O'Mahony Capt., Jack O'Donoghue, CJ Stander.
