Four changes for match against Munster

14th December 2006

David Young has selected a team that shows four changes for this Saturday’s Heineken Cup match against Munster at Thomond Park.

Nick Macleod gets a well deserved start at 10 having waited patiently for a starting opportunity, while Tom Shanklin is brought in from the wing to partner Jamie Robinson in the centre which gives the near ever present Marc Stcherbina a spot on the bench. John Yapp starts in the front row as Gethin Jenkins was not considered for selection after injuring his calf in the home match, however he should be available for the Ospreys match. Bradley Davies also gets a start in the second row after James Goode picked up an ankle injury in last Sunday’s defeat and is expected to be out for up to 14 days.
