Damian de Allende, CJ Stander and Chris Cloete all have been named in Munster’s match-day squad for their semi-final showdown against Leinster in Dublin on Friday.
There are three changes to the Munster side that defeated Connacht last week, with Stephen Archer, Billy Holland and Jack O’Donoghue all coming back into the pack.
Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell and Archer pack down in the front row. Last week’s man of the match, Tadhg Beirne, and Holland are in the tight five with captain Peter O’Mahony, O’Donoghue and Stander.
The backline is unchanged for the third weekend in succession. De Allende again pairs up with Chris Farrell in midfield, for what will be the South African’s third appearance for the club.
JJ Hanrahan, who was awarded the PRO14 Golden Boot for the second time earlier this week, is partnered by Conor Murray in the halfbacks.
Meanwhile, Leinster boss Leo Cullen has made a number of changes from the team beat Ulster last week.
The biggest news is the return of captain Johnny Sexton, who is back to lead the team from the No 10 position.
Jordan Larmour is back at fullback with Hugo Keenan on the right wing and James Lowe on the left. Robbie Henshaw and Garry Ringrose form the centre partnership, with Luke McGrath partnering Sexton in the halfbacks.
In the pack, Cian Healy, Rónan Kelleher and Andrew Porter line up in the front row with Devin Toner and Scott Fardy in the second row. The loose trio is formed by Caelan Doris and Will Connors at the side of the scrum with Jack Conan at eighthman.
