Munster Rugby, who face Exeter Chiefs in the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 next month, welcome back scrum-half Craig Casey and back-row forward Gavin Coombes from international duty for their United Rugby Championship clash against Benetton Rugby at Musgrave Park on Friday.

The Irish internationals are two of eight changes to the team who were edged out 23-21 by the Lions in Johannesburg last Saturday.

Full-back Matt Gallagher, centre Rory Scannell, wing Simon Zebo, fly-half Ben Healy, hooker Diarmuid Barron and prop Stephen Archer also return, while there is a positional switch too, with Damian de Allende moving to outside centre.

Jean Kleyn and Fineen Wycherley form the Munster second row for the seventh successive game.
