KEITH EARLS IS back in the Munster starting XV for tomorrow’s Pool 1 clash with Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun Stadium [KO 5.30pm, Sky Sports 2].

Earls, who started on the bench for last weekend’s win over Racing 92, has been named on the wing by Munster director of rugby Rassie Erasmus, with Ronan O’Mahony not included in the matchday squad for a game which could secure Munster’s place in the knockout stages.

The other three changes in personnel to the Munster team are in the pack. Dave Kilcoyne replaces James Cronin at loosehead prop, Jean Kleyn returns from illness to start in the second row ahead of Billy Holland, while injured flanker Tommy O’Donnell is replaced by Jack O’Donoghue.

With two games remaining in Pool 1, leaders Munster are currently three points clear of second-placed Glasgow.
