Seven Munster changes for Pro 14 game against Southern Kings

Chris Farrell and Andrew Conway have been recalled to the Munster team to play the Southern Kings in Cork tomorrow.

Coach Johan van Graan has made seven changes to his team for the Pro 14 encounter with the South African side.

Farrell was released back to his province after lining out in Ireland's win over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Conway sat out the opening two rounds of the Six Nations due to an ankle injury, but has returned to training.

Niall Scannell, John Ryan and Billy Holland also return from international duty to start the clash. Tyler Bleyendaal captains the side in his first start at out-half this season with his three previous starts this campaign at inside centre.

Mike Haley starts at full-back with Conway and Darren Sweetnam named on the flanks.

Rory Scannell and Farrell start in the centres with Neil Cronin and Bleyendaal named in the half-backs.

Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell and Ryan pack down in the front row with Jean Kleyn and Holland in the engine room.

Fineen Wycherley, Chris Cloete and Arno Botha start in the back row to complete the side. Cloete makes his first appearance since sustaining a neck injury in December.

JJ Hanrahan has recovered from a hip injury sustained last month to take his place in the squad with Academy back-row forward Gavin Coombes also named among the replacements.

Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Darren Sweetnam; Tyler Bleyendaal (C), Neil Cronin; Jeremy Loughman, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland; Fineen Wycherley, Chris Cloete, Arno Botha.
