<div align="center">Ok, so Munster have been on a roll as of late. Once again they have shown up in Europe and have put themselves into firm contention for the Heineken European Cup as one of the favourites. This, combined with their good form as of late in the Magners league, will be a huge battle for the Ospreys.

Picking up their only silverware of the season the Ospreys have nothing to play for but their pride now as they travel to Munster to play what will hopefully be a big match.

Watch out for the battle between the 4 centres. Should be explosive.

So no O&#39;Gara, not surprisingly but Kidney has said he&#39;s making good progress and hasn&#39;t ruled him out of the Sarries match. Stringer has been included though as has Wallace and Horan who both missed the Leinster defeat.

The team will be named tomorrow lunchtime.

Obvious wholesale changes for Munster ahead of the Ospreys&#39; visit.

Only O&#39;Driscoll and Leamy keep their places from last weeks match against Leinster with realistically only 3 starters in the side that should feature at Coventry.

Munster: Shaun Payne; Brian Carney, Barry Murphy, Kieran Lewis, Anthony Horgan; Paul Warwick; Tomas O&#39;Leary; Federico Pucciariello, Frank Sheahan,Tony Buckley; Mick O&#39;Driscoll, Paul O&#39;Connell capt; Donnacha Ryan, Niall Ronan, Denis Leamy.

Replacements: Marcus Horan, Jerry Flannery, Anthony Foley, David Wallace, Peter Stringer, Jeremy Manning, Keith Earls.

I&#39;m going. Great to see Barry back but he probably won&#39;t do much with Lewis at 12. I would have Earls ahead of Horgan other than that relatively happy with the lineup. Hopefully we will win.

Great to see Murphy back but as you say he mightn&#39;t get much ball from that backline.
