Ospreys Head Coach, Allen Clarke, said:

Its been a good start to the campaign with two home wins. Munster away presents a different challenge, particularly as we've made changes to the team.  

"Squad management is important but so too is player opportunity. Selection represents what weve observed throughout pre-season and provides individuals an opportunity to be tested against a quality team.

The players coming in have earned our trust and the right to wear the shirt; they fully understand the level of performance expected of them on Friday night. As a club its important for us to show progress and grow collectively, recognising the tests ahead and the demands of the season schedule.
