Carbery & Murray Return As Munster Name Team For Ulster Clash

Munster team Ulster

Joey Carbery and Conor Murray have both been named in the starting XV for Munster’s Guinness PRO14 clash with Ulster at the Kingspan Stadium (KO 7.35pm). 

Carbery made his return from an ankle injury as a replacement in last Saturday’s loss to Leinster at Thomond Park but he has now been handed a start as he looks to step up his recovery.

Murray will partner Carbery in the halfbacks while the southern province have continued with the centre partnership of Rory Scannell and Sam Arnold.
