Rassie Erasmus has made four changes for Munster's Champions Cup clash with Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun Stadium tomorrow (kick-off 5.30pm) as Ireland international Keith Earls returns to the starting line-up.
Earls came off the bench to win his 50th European cap in the 32-7 win over Racing 92 last weekend.
In the front row, loose-head prop Dave Kilcoyne starts this weekend with Niall Scannell and John Ryan continuing at hooker and tight-head respectively.
Donnacha Ryan is joined in the second row by Jean Kleyn, who has overcome last week's illness to make his first European start for the province.
Jack O'Donoghue takes the place of the injured Tommy O'Donnell in the back row as captain Peter O'Mahony and CJ Stander continue at blindside and number 8.
Conor Murray and Tyler Bleyendaal are again the half-back pairing, with no change to the midfield partnership of Rory Scannell and Jaco Taute.
The final changes sees Keith Earls start on the wing in place of Ronan O'Mahony joining last week's try scorers Andrew Conway and Simon Zebo in the back three.
Munster believe that O'Donnell, who sprained his ankle in the Racing win, will make a quick return to action, however fellow back-row Robin Copeland will be out for six to seven weeks after requiring surgery on his thumb.
20-year-old centre Sam Arnold faces two months out with a knee problem.

Dave Shanahan will make his first senior start after being named at scrum-half, while Charles Piutau and Pete Browne are also brought into the starting XV.
Shanahan will be partnered at half-back by Paddy Jackson, who kicked a match-winning drop goal when the two sides met at Kingspan Stadium in Round 2 in October.
Luke Marshall and Stuart McCloskey continue their midfield combination outside the Ireland fly-half.
Piutau, ranked second in the competition for metres made in attack, is selected on the right wing, with captain Andrew Trimble moving to the opposite flank.
Louis Ludik, who was impressive in last week's game at Parc y Scarlets, is retained at full-back.
Ross Kane will make his first European start after being selected in an unchanged front row that also includes Ireland skipper Rory Best and Callum Black.
Browne's inclusion in the second row alongside Kieran Treadwell means that Iain Henderson will shift to the back row and will wear the number 6 jersey, alongside Chris Henry and Sean Reidy.
Clive Ross, Paul Marshall and Jacob Stockdale make way for the new faces in the starting side, but the trio are included among the replacements.
