Ronan O'Gara has recovered from a hamstring injury and has been named in the Munster side for the RaboDirect PRO12 game tomorrow against Cardiff Blues.

O'Gara limped out of the Heineken Cup game against Racing Metro on 13 October after 33 minutes and returns for the first time having come through training in UL yesterday unscathed.

His presence sees Ian Keatley switch to inside centre while captain Doug Howlett also returns to action having been rested last week when Zebre visited.

Munster team to play Cardiff Blues: F Jones; D Howlett capt, C Laulala, I Keatley, L O'Dea; R O'Gara, D Williams; M Horan, M Sherry, S Archer; D Foley, B Holland; Dave O'Callaghan, S Dougall, T O'Donnell.

Replacements: D Varley, J Ryan, W du Preez, I Nagle, P Butler, P Stringer, D Barnes, J Murphy
