MUNSTER SCRUM-HALF Tomás O’Leary will see plenty of familiar faces if he comes off the bench to make his first Montpellier appearance this weekend.

The Grand Slam-winning number nine has been put straight in the matchday squad for Sunday’s clash with Leinster (1pm, Sky Sports) after being signed on loan as a medical joker.

Nic White takes the starting scrum-half slot alongside Frans Steyn, who moves into the 10 shirt having played centre last weekend and will look to supply plenty of ammunition to Nemani Nadolo on the wing.
