ANTHONY FOLEY HAS made two changes, both at prop, for Munster’s European Champions Cup clash with Saracens tomorrow (7.45pm).

James Cronin and BJ Botha start on either side of Duncan Casey in a reshuffled front row.

The two props came off the bench early in the second half last week with Munster trailing the Sale Sharks 23-7.

Otherwise it’s as you were for the side which started the remarkable 27-26 win at the AJ Bell Stadium, sealed by Ian Keatley’s last-gasp drop goal.

Walk-up tickets are still expected to be on sale outside Thomond Park tomorrow.
