MUNSTER HEAD COACH Johann van Graan has named a much-changed starting line-up for tomorrow night’s Guinness Pro14 meeting with Ulster at Kingspan Stadium [KO 7.35pm, Eir Sport 1 and Premier Sports].

A first start of the season for Joey Carbery is one of 10 personnel amendments from the defeat to Leinster last weekend.

Carbery will be partnered at half-back by Conor Murray, while fellow Irish internationals Peter O’Mahony, Niall Scannell, Andrew Conway and Keith Earls are also among those who come back into the side.

Fineen Wycherley, Jack O’Donoghue, Sammy Arnold, Rory Scannell and Shane Daly — who switches to fullback — are the five players who retain their places.
