Munster travel to Glasgow this weekend with high hopes of securing a home quarter-final in the European Champions Cup.

Following an impressive away win over Racing 92 last week, Rassie Erasmus’ side are hot on the heels of another road win which would go a long way to securing a quarter-final in Limerick.

The South African has named his side to travel to Scotstoun, with a number of changes.

David Kilcoyne gets the call at loosehead prop, while Jack O’Donoghue comes in for the injured Tommy O’Donnell.

In the backs, Keith Earls comes in at the wing.

Ian Keatley returns to the matchday 23 with a place on the bench.

The teams have met twice so far this season, with the Irish province coming out on top on both occasions. The Champions Cup fixture came one week after the passing of Anthony Foley, when the 14 men of Munster picked up a bonus point win over the visitors.

They have gone on a remarkable run of results since then, winning all but one of their matches. If they manage to pick up four points in Scotland tomorrow, it will go down as one of the great Munster results in Europe.
