Paul O'Connell will be missing from the Munster line-up for their Heineken Cup semi-final match with Biarritz Olympique in San Sebastian on Sunday.
The Irish province's skipper has been suffering from a groin strain since the final round of the RBS 6 Nations and hasn't been included in Munster's 26 man squad for the game in Spain.
But the good news for the small army of Munster fans who will be travelling to support their side in a repeat of the 2006 Heineken Cup final is that Keith Earls, Ian Dowling and Doug Howlett have all been included in the squad.
Munster Squad: Backs: Tomas O'Leary, Peter Stringer, Ronan O'Gara, Paul Warwick, Lifeimi Mafi, Jean de Villiers, Tom Gleeson, Doug Howlett, Denis Hurley, Ian Dowling, Keith Earls, Scott Deasy.
Forwards: Marcus Horan, Tony Buckley, Julien Brugnaut, John Hayes, Damien Varley, Jerry Flannery, Mick O'Driscoll, Billy Holland, Donncha O'Callaghan, Alan Quinlan, David Wallace, Nick Williams, James Coughlan, Niall Ronan.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
