Ronan O’Gara, Tomas O’Leary, and Donncha O’Callaghan are all recalled to the Munster squad ahead of their Magners League clash with Edinburgh on Friday.

All are expeceted to feature at some stage as Munster look to boost their form further after last Friday’s win over Aironi.

Team Manager Shaun Payne says that the first away trip of the season is hugely important in the long term for Munster.

“Our away form wasn’t good last season, that’s something we are very conscious of and looking to improve. This weekend is an opportunity to begin that process and so it’s a massive game for us.”

MUNSTER (v Edinburgh): D Hurley, F Jones, S Deasy, I Dowling, D Howlett, D Barnes, J Murphy, S Tuitupou, R O’Gara, P Warwick, D Williams, P Stringer, T O’Leary. W du Preez, M Horan, D Varley, D Fogarty, J Hayes, T Buckley, D O’Callaghan, B Holland, D Ryan, M O’Driscoll, I Nagle, A Quinlan, N Ronan, D Leamy, T O’Donnell, P O’Mahony.
