The teams are out for tomorrow’s interprovincial derbies in the Guinness PRO12.

Munster have named Conor Murray on the bench for their tie with Connacht, with the scrum-half now in line to make his first appearance in nearly two months.

Rassie Erasmus has made eight changes with the returning Billy Holland captaining the side – Cahir’s Tommy O’Donnell is named among the subs.

Meanwhile Munster have six players on the PRO12 dreamteam for this season.

No recognition for O’Donnell or Donnacha Ryan but Jaco Taute, Rory Scannell, Tyler Bleyendaal, Billy Holland, John Ryan and Dave Kilycoyne all feature as the province dominate the selection.
With one eye of their European playoff later in the month, Pat Lam has made eleven changes for the game in Thomond Park tomorrow – his last PRO12 tie with Connacht.

Tiernan O’Halloran, Tom Farrell, Cian Kelleher and Andrew Browne are the only players retained from the team that started in last week’s lost to the Scarlets.
Meanwhile Leinster have named Joey Carberry at scrum-half for their trip to Ulster.

Like Connacht, Leo Cullen has also made eleven changes having already secured a home semi-final in the competition.

Roger Wilson, Ulster’s most capped player, will earn his 221st and final cap for the province when he starts at number 8 in the game.

Ruan Pienaar will also make his last competitive appearance at scrum-half.

Both games get underway at 5.15 tomorrow.
