Following on from their opening round win in Edinburgh, Munster coach Rob Penney makes just two changes to his starting XV for Friday's RaboDirect Pro12 clash with Benetton Treviso at Thomond Park, kick-off 8.00pm.

Those changes occur up front with Stephen Archer getting in ahead of BJ Botha while Dave O'Callaghan gets the nod over Paddy Butler at No 6.

Penney announced the side this morning after training at UL where the squad spent 90 minutes being put through their paces by Penney, Simon Mannix and Anthony Foley.

Munster XV v Treviso: D Hurley; Doug Howlett (c), C Laulala, J Downey, L O’Dea; I Keatley, D Williams; W du Preez, D Varley, S Archer; D O’Callaghan, B Holland; D O'Callaghan, S Dougall, J Coughlan.

Replacements: Mike Sherry, Dave Kilcoyne, BJ Botha, Dave Foley, Paddy Butler, Peter Stringer, Scott Deasy, Ivan Dineen.
