Bleyendaal will captain the side from out-half in the only change from last weekend’s comprehensive 51-18 win over the Cheetahs at Thomond Park with Ian Keatley making way.

John Ryan is in line to make his 100th appearance for the province if he comes off the bench with the prop first featuring in September 2011 against Cardiff Blues.

Also included amongst the replacements is James Cronin, who has recovered from a knee injury and may make his seasonal bow.
