Munster have made five changes for Sunday's Guinness Pro14 clash with Ospreys at Thomond Park (kick-off 2.45pm).

Munster were not in action last weekend as their scheduled match with Benetton Rugby was postponed due to a Coronavirus outbreak in the Italian team’s camp, so this will be their first game since their 28-16 win over the Dragons.

Props James Cronin and Stephen Archer join Kevin O'Byrne in the front row as they try to make it five wins from five outings in the Pro14.

Fineen Wycherley takes his place alongside Jean Kleyn in the second row with Tommy O'Donnell coming in at openside as Jack O’Donoghue and Gavin Coombes complete the back row. O’Donoghue captains the side on his fifth successive start.

The only personnel change to the backline sees Mike Haley start at full-back. With Haley’s return, Matt Gallagher makes the positional switch to the wing with Darren Sweetnam covering the opposite flank.

It’s as you were for the half-back pairing of Craig Casey and JJ Hanrahan with Damian de Allende and Rory Scannell continuing their centre partnership.

Returning from international camp is John Ryan who is named among the replacements, and Dan Goggin is also in line to feature after returning from shoulder injury.

Munster: Mike Haley; Darren Sweetnam, Rory Scannell, Damian de Allende, Matt Gallagher; JJ Hanrahan, Craig Casey; James Cronin, Kevin O’Byrne, Stephen Archer; Jean Kleyn, Fineen Wycherley; Jack O’Donoghue (captain), Tommy O’Donnell, Gavin Coombes.

Replacements: Diarmuid Barron, Josh Wycherley, John Ryan, Billy Holland, Jack O’Sullivan, Nick McCarthy, Ben Healy, Dan Goggin.
