England lock Ben Kay makes a return to the Tigers side, he has recovered from afoot injury he sustained in England's Grand Slam defeat of Ireland two weeks ago.
Loose head prop Graham Rowntree was unavailable for selection as he is still recovering from a knee injury.
Included in the line-up is England flanker Neil Back, he said: 'I'm expecting to get a pretty vocal reception. Because of what has happened since last year's final I do regret what I did. But if it had happened in the first half of the game would anyone have been talking about it now?
'I would rather talk about the fact we crossed their line four times. If it had been a boxing match It would have been over long before that final incident. Munster were, by their own players' admission, poor in the final last year.
'I had a pint of the black stuff with Ronan O'Gara after the England game in Dublin. He said all their players are talking about the game. It's a fantastic competition to be playing in.
'This is a new occasion and professional sportsmen have got the ability to put previous games out of their minds. There have been a lot of games played since last year's final. It will be two different sides competing this weekend.'
