    <td ="article">Kelly returns to the side to win his 151st cap
    having been out of action since the final pool game against Leiceter
    Tigers in mid-January while O'Driscoll has recovered from the injury he
    picked up in the final RBS Six Nations game against Italy in Rome.

    Barry Murphy makes way for Lifeimi Mafi at outside centre,
    Murphy's opportunity to stake a claim not helped by his injury forced
    withdrawal from the starting line-up last weekend against Ulster.


    Coach Declan Kidney will late till later to finalise his bench with
    Anthony Foley and John O'Sullivan vying for the number 19 jersey.


    Meanwhile Llanelli Scarlets are able to name a full-strength side after winger Mark Jones
    passed a fitness teston Wednesdayto confirm his place in the side.
    The Scarletsflyer took a bang to his knee in training earlier this
    week in Tenby. Matthew Watkins was placed on standby in case Jones failed his fitness test, but he will now start the game from the bench.


    “Mark came through the fitness test without any reaction this
    morning, so he will play on Friday,” confirmed a Scarlets spokesman.


    Munster: Christian Cullen; John Kelly, Lifeimi
    Mafi, Trevor Halstead, Ian Dowling; Ronan O'Gara (capt), Peter
    Stringer; Marcus Horan, Jerry Flannery, John Hayes; Donncha
    O'Callaghan, Mick O'Driscoll; Alan Quinlan, David Wallace, Denis Leamy.
    Replacements: Frank Sheahan, Federico Pucciariello, Donncha Ryan, Anthony Foley/John O'Sullivan, Tomas O'Leary, Jeremy Manning, Barry Murphy


    Llanelli Scarlets:Barry Davies;Dafydd
    James,Regan King,Gavin Evans,Mark Jones;Stephen Jones,Dwayne
    Peel;Iestyn Thomas,Matthew Rees,Deacon Manu;Vernon Cooper,Scott
    MacLeod;6 Simon Easterby (capt),Gavin Thomas,Alix Popham.Replacements: Ken Owens, John Davies, Inoke Afeaki, Dafydd Jones, Liam Davies, Ceiron Thomas, Matthew Watkins</td></tr></t></table>

      Ryan and Manning on the bench. O'Leary covering s/h, wing and fullback? I know Manning has played there but O'Leary is better there imo.

      Big test for Mafi, defensively. If it goes right there we've a good chance of winnig it, if it goes wrong....

      It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

      Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

              Anthony Foley/John O'Sullivan ???????????
              He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                JOS must surely be on the bench ahead of Foley for this one

                    Mafi'd better have been working on his defence this week.

                      I just hope Halstead and mafi were working alot on the defensive side in training this wee, cause the lines ran by ulster last week just cut straight through the 2 of them,

                      Honestly you can see llanelli targeting that area in the first 10 mins or so and if they get any joy they'll bombard it all day ..

                      Bar that team looks strong with alot of experience at this stage of the tournament ..

                          Hope Mafi has been told to concentrate on his defence and listen to Trev. Big ask for John Kelly coming back to play his first game since January at HC Q/F level.

                            Looks good. Glad to see Rags back. I agree with grd09 though, Mafi will
                            be a defensive worry.
                            If your religion is worth killing for, please start with yourself.

                              How risky is playing John Kelly?(has he played with his club recently?) Great boost if he is back and fit....


                              Is bambi dropped,or not fully fit?


                              How can JOS be dropped and possibly no teven make the bench after last Fri?


                              and why is manning now back in ahead of Hickie?Surely we should have played him last fri if that was the case?
