MUNSTER HEAD COACH Anthony Foley has named an unchanged side for the first time this season as they aim to seal a European Champions Cup place for 2016/17 by overcoming the Scarlets tomorrow afternoon in the Guinness Pro12 at Thomond Park [3.00pm].

Foley has kept faith with the same starting XV that saw off Edinburgh last weekend in Cork. Having been named IRUPA Players’ Player of the Year this week, CJ Stander will wear the captain’s armband once again, while Dave Kilcoyne will make his 100th appearance for the province as they bring their season to an end.
