Munster Make Six Changes For Stade Francais

Munster face a must win game in Paris.

Munster coach, Anthony Foley, has made six changes to the side that beat Ulster in Belfast for this weekend’s must win clash with Stade Francais.

Foley has kept faith with the potentially exciting centre partnership of Rory Scannell and Francis Saili in midfield. Indeed Scannell’s form is such that he seems to have taken some of the pressure off Ian Keatley, who once more lines out at out half, with Connor Murray selected at 9.

As expected the back three includes, Andrew Conway, Keith Earls and Simon Zebo.

Up front, Foley has stuck with the same front row of Dave Kilcoyne, Mike Sherry and BJ Botha, while Australian Mark Chisholm partnering Dave Foley in the second row.

Fans will welcome Tommy O’Donnell’s selection at seven, with CJ Stander and Robin Copland making up the remainder of the back row.

Not to many people’s surprise, Tyler Bleyendaal has once more been ruled out through injury.
