RONAN O’GARA HAS been named in the Munster squad for their RaboDirect PRO12 semi-final against Ospreys.

The Reds travel to Liberty Stadium for a Friday’ night play-off showdown  (ko 7.35pm).

It is the first time the veteran Ireland out-half has been included in the panel since the Heineken Cup quarter-final loss to Ulster in Limerick last month.

It was then, of course, that the Cork Con man picked up the leg injury that ruled him out for a period. Tony McGahan’s side travel to Wales without Paul O’Connell and Damien Varley.

Munster will name their starting XV at noon tomorrow before flying out to Bristol, the province confirmed this afternoon.

Munster: F Jones, D Barnes, J Murphy, I Dineen, K Earls, L Mafi, S Zebo, T O’Leary, C Murray, S Deasy, I Keatley, R O’Gara, D Kilcoyne, W du Preez, S Archer, J Ryan, M Sherry, D Fogarty, S Henry, BJ Botha, Donncha O’Callaghan, M O’Driscoll, D Ryan, T O’Donnell, Dave O’Callaghan, P O’Mahony, P Butler.

Influx of Kiwis to the provinces but where are the Irish coaches?
