Munster will be without several of the international contingent for their trip to Ravenhill as Declan Kidney keeps one eye on next Friday's Heineken Cup quarter final at Stradey Park. Only Jerry Flannery is in the squad which will be captained by Alan Quinlan. Brian Carney will be on the bench if he can prove his fitness.

Ulster have doubts over David Humphreys who is struggling with a back injury and will undergo a fitness test tomorrow. Neil Best misses out with an ankle injury.

Strange that Munster are going to be a bit cold though going into the Llanelli game, although they've never given a rats ass about the Magners League so they're hardly going to start now.

Ulster: B Cunningham; T Bowe, P Steinmetz/A Trimble, P Wallace/P Steinmetz, P McKenzie/A Trimble; D Humphreys/P Wallace, I Boss; J Fitzpatrick, R Best, B Young; J Harrison , R Caldwell; S Ferris, K Dawson, R Wilson.
Replacements: P Shields, S Best/D Fitzpatrick, T Barker, D Pollock, K Campbell, P McKenzie/An Other, A Maxwell.

Munster: C Cullen, B Murphy, L Mafi, T Halstead, I Dowling, E Hickey, T O'Leary, E McGovern, J Flannery, T Buckley, D Ryan, C Wyatt, A Quinlan, T McGann, J O'Sullivan.
Replacements: T Ryan, F Sheahan, M Melbourne, AN Other, B O'Meara, J Manning, B Carney or K Earls.

Watch out, boys - Carney has entered the building. Ridiculous Munster-type comeback. Only problem is, it hands the title to Linstre.

what difference should it make to Munster whether Leinster or Ulster win the title, it's not as if there's any proper rivalry there like you see with teams in England or France.
