Munster Team Named For PRO14 Clash With Glasgow

Can Munster bounce back?

The Munster team to face Conference A leaders Glasgow Warriors at Irish Independent Park in the Guinness PRO14 tomorrow night has been named. Billy Holland captains the side in his 180th appearance for the province as Head Coach Johann van Graan makes 12 changes to the team beaten in Cardiff last week.

Simon Zebo starts at full-back with Andrew Conway returning from Ireland camp to start on the right wing with Alex Wootton, Munster’s top try-scorer so far this season, on the opposite flank.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

Sammy Arnold and Dan Goggin are the centres with out-half Tyler Bleyendaal and scrum-half James Hart completing the backline. A new front row sees hooker Niall Scannell return from international duty with James Cronin and Stephen Archer the two props.
