THE MUNSTER TEAM to play Stade Francais tomorrow at Thomond Park (1.00pm) shows three changes in personnel from last weekend’s 27-7 defeat to the French side in Paris.

Munster head coach Anthony Foley has moved Simon Zebo to full-back to replace the injured Andrew Conway, so Ronan O’Mahony will fill the vacancy on the wing.

Up front, injured prop BJ Botha is replaced by Mario Sagario, while Billy Holland comes into the back row at the expense of Robin Copeland, who drops to the bench.

Ireland international Donnacha Ryan is included among the replacements, alongside the likes of Kevin O’Byrne and Liam O’Connor, who could make their European debuts.
