CJ Stander will captain Munster from number 8 this weekend in his 50th Heineken Champions Cup appearance for the province. 

Johann van Graan's side meet Toulouse in the last 16 of the competition at Thomond Park on Saturday from 3pm.

Peter O’Mahony misses out due to the thigh laceration he sustained in their PRO14 final loss to Leinster while Fineen Wycherley has rehabbed the neck injury he sustained against Scarlets to be included in the match-day squad.

There are three changes to the side that started in Dublin last weekend and they are all in the pack.

Jack O’Donoghue starts at openside for the injured O’Mahony, and he joins Gavin Coombes and Stander in the back row.

In the front row Dave Kilcoyne and Stephen Archer scrum down on either side of Niall Scannell for Saturday’s encounter.

Jean Kleyn and Tadhg Beirne continue in the engine room.

 

An unchanged backline sees Mike Haley start at full-back with Andrew Conway and Keith Earls completing the back three.

Damian de Allende and Chris Farrell form the centre partnership as Conor Murray and Joey Carbery start in the half-backs.
