JOHANN VAN GRAAN has made eight changes to the Munster team that beat Leinster ahead of Friday night’s visit of Ulster to Thomond Park in the Guinness Pro14 Rainbow Cup.

The standout inclusion is that of Dan Goggin at 13, who will make his first appearance for the province since he sustained a hand injury in January. The 26-year-old is partnered in the midfield by Rory Scannell, with Damian de Allende beginning on the bench and Chris Farrell missing out against his native province.

Andrew Conway and JJ Hanrahan also come into the backline, while John Ryan, Fineen Wycherley, Chris Cloete and Gavin Coombes come into the pack.

Joey Carbery gets a rest with Ben Healy set to deputise for Hanrahan when required.

Jeremy Loughman is set to make his 50th Munster appearance off the bench on Friday evening.
