Sport: Irish Provinces Name Teams For Weekend’s Heineken Cup Games


Rob Penney has made four changes to his Munster side for their crunch clash with Perpignan in the Heineken Cup tomorrow.

Donnacha Ryan comes into the starting 15 after recovering from a knee ligament injury.

He replaces Donncha O’Callaghan in the second row.

Cathal Sheridan replaces the injured Conor Murray at scrum half, while James Cronin and BJ Botha replace Dave Kilcoyne and Stephen Archer in the front row.

There are three changes to the Connacht team for their return leg fixture at home to Toulouse tomorrow.

Jason Harris-Wright and Rodney Ah You come into the front row, while Galway-man Eoin McKeon also comes in at Number 8.

Leinster and Ulster have named unchanged teams for their respective Heineken Cup clashes.

Leinster face the Northampton Saints at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow evening, with Jamie Heaslip captaining an all-Ireland team again, after last week’s win against the English side in Franklin’s Gardens.

Ulster are away to Treviso in Italy tomorrow afternoon, with Mark Anscombe naming the same Ulster squad for two consecutive matches for the first time.
