Munster v Edinburgh live stream: How to watch the Pro14 match online from anywhere
Changes for Munster were inevitable after a senior player tested positive for Covid-19 and six other players were placed in isolation after being identified as potential close contacts.
However, Rory Scannell and Tommy O’Donnell come back into the starting line-up. Matt Gallagher starts on the wing and Ben Healy comes in at fly-half.
Edinburgh make seven changes of their own – most notably, Jamie Ritchie returns to the fray while the lethal Duhan van der Merwe is back on the wing. Stuart McInally and Grant Gilchrist were recently unveiled as the club’s co-captains, too.
Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Alex McHenry, Rory Scannell, Matt Gallagher; Ben Healy, Craig Casey; Jeremy Loughman, Rhys Marshall, John Ryan, Fineen Wycherley, Tadhg Beirne, Jack O’Donoghue, Tommy O’Donnell, CJ Stander (captain).
Replacements: Kevin O’Byrne, James Cronin, Roman Salanoa, Gavin Coombes, John Hodnett, Conor Murray, Jack Crowley, Dan Goggin.
Edinburgh: Damien Hoyland; Darcy Graham, Mark Bennett, George Taylor, Duhan van der Merwe; Jaco van der Walt, Nic Groom; Rory Sutherland, Stuart McInally (co-captain), WP Nel, Ben Toolis, Grant Gilchrist (co-captain), Jamie Ritchie, Hamish Watson, Nick Haining.
