Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus has rung the changes to his Munster starting XV ahead of Saturday's Guinness PRO12 semi-final against Ospreys.

In total there are 12 changes to the side that defeated Connacht in the final round of games as Munster look to reach the final at the Aviva Stadium on May 27.

Conor Murray starts for the first time since his return from injury and he will join Tyler Bleyendaal in the half-back line, as Francis Saili and Rory Scannell return to take their place in midfield.

Simon Zebo lines out at full-back with Andrew Conway and Keith Earls, two of the three retained from the last game, starting on the wings.

Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell and John Ryan take their place in the front row as Billy Holland is joined in the second row by Donnacha Ryan, who is set for his final appearance at Thomond Park ahead of his imminent move to France.

Peter O’Mahony returns as captain with Tommy O’Donnell and CJ Stander completing the pack.

Munster (XV v Ospreys): S Zebo; A Conway, F Saili, R Scannell, K Earls; T Bleyendaal, C Murray; D Kilcoyne, N Scannell, J Ryan; D Ryan, B Holland; P O’Mahony, T O’Donnell, CJ Stander.
