ERC can confirm that the Federation Française de Rugby (FFR) has withdrawn its application to host the 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals, due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the availability of the Stade de France.
Munster coach Declan Kidney in naming the squad this afternoon following training at Thomond Park commended the professionalism of the players for their work as a full squad having come together this week for the first time in seven weeks.
Kidney said, " This is a huge game for us in terms of qualification for next season's Heineken Cup. Results against the Scarlets in recent years just point up the enormity of the challenge we face in Stradey on Saturday."
Munster: M Horan, J Hayes, F Pucciariello, D Fogarty, J Flannery, P O'Connell, D O'Callaghan, M O'Driscoll, T Hogan, S Keogh, D Wallace, J O'Sullivan, A Foley.
P Stringer, T O'Leary, R O'Gara, J Manning, T Halstead, M Mullins, I Dowling, J Kelly, C Cullen, S Payne.
