Five changes for Munster ahead of Castres clash

Munster have made five changes for Saturday's Heineken Champions Cup meeting with Castres at Thomond Park. 

Having been forced to field a youthful side in last week's win over Wasps, head coach Johann Van Graan has opted to stick with a number of players.

Chief among them is Patrick Campbell, who holds his place at full-back.

Campbell (19) scored a try in Coventry last weekend.

Ben Healy is handed a start at out-half, while four players come into the pack.

Niall Scannell, John Ryan, Jean Kleyn and Jack O’Donoghue are all included.

Keith Earls starts on the wing.

One more try for the Limerick man will see him equal Anthony Foley and Simon Zebo's record of 23 tries for the province in the competition.

The game at Thomond Park is still scheduled to go ahead - but there is lingering doubt surrounding many of this weekend's fixtures.

New French government restrictions on travelling between the UK and France has put games between Top 14 and Premiership sides in doubt.

French clubs are understood to be discussing the possibility of all clubs from the country opting out of this weekend's games.

Munster: Patrick Campbell; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Damian de Allende, Keith Earls; Ben Healy, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne; Peter O’Mahony (C), John Hodnett, Jack O’Donoghue

Replacements: Diarmuid Barron, Josh Wycherley, Keynan Knox, Jason Jenkins, Jack O’Sullivan, Craig Casey, Jack Crowley, Alex Kendellen
