Alex Wootton comes into the side on the other flank. James Hart, JJ Hanrahan and Zebo are the backline substitutes.
Andrew Conway keeps his place in the starting team – moving to full back – while Sammy Arnold and Rory Scannell resume their centre partnership.
Ian Keatley and Conor Murray play as the half-backs, while Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell and Stephen Archer make up the front row with second-row duo Jean Kleyn and Billy Holland starting in the engine room. Peter O’Mahony, Jack O’Donoghue and CJ Stander are the back-row forwards.
The clash will be a record 13th semi-final for Munster.
