MUNSTER BACK ROW CJ Stander will get the chance to continue his run of scoring form from the start when Pro12 champions Glasgow arrive at Thomond Park (tonight 18.00).

The South African, who will soon be eligible for Ireland selection, has scored three tries in his two Pro12 outings this season, including a late winner off the bench away to Ospreys last time out.

Stander will be flanked by Dave O’Callaghan at blindside and Jack O’Donoghue at openside. In the ultra-competitive front row James Cronin edges out Dave Kilcoyne at loosehead and Mike Sherry will hope to further his comeback off the bench at some point.

Felix Jones captains the side from fullback and academy prospect David Johnston wins his second start for the province at outside centre.
