PETER O’MAHONY AND Gavin Coombes are back in the Munster team to face Ulster in Friday’s URC quarter-final.  

Kingspan Stadium hosts the last-eight tie tomorrow evening (7.35pm, live on Premier Sports 2, TG4), and the visitors make four changes to the side that lost out to Leinster a fortnight ago. 

O’Mahony returns to captain the side, while Coombes makes his first appearance since picking up an ankle injury in April. 

Damian de Allende and Stephen Archer also come into the starting XV, with tighthead prop Archer set to become the province’s second most-capped player on the night. 

Jack O’Donoghue, meanwhile, is missing due to a back strain.
