Munster have made three changes to their starting line-up for their visit to the Scarlets in a RaboDirect PRO12 clash on Saturday.

With Ireland internationals Donncha O'Callaghan and Ronan O'Gara returning from international duty, Ian Keatley switches to full back, a position he has occupied twice this season against Dragons and Racing.

Munster will be captained by hooker Mike Sherry who, at 24 years old, becomes one of the youngest players to lead the side in the absence of injured club captain Doug Howlett.

Scarlets can also welcome back two internationals as both Liam Williams and Josh Turnbull return from the Wales camp for the fixture at Parc y Scarlets.

Scarlets head coach Simon Easterby has kept faith with the majority of his side that won last weekend against Connacht, meaning Aled Davies and Owen Williams are retained as half-backs.

Williams returns on the wing, along with South African tight-head prop Jacobie Adriaanse. Centre Gareth Maule starts on his return from injury.

The teams:

Scarlets: 15 Gareth Owen, 14 Liam Williams, 13 Gareth Maule, 12 Adam Warren, 11 Andy Fenby, 10 Owen Williams, 9 Aled Davies. 8 Kieran Murphy, 7 Josh Turnbull, 6 Rob McCusker (capt), 5 Johan Synman, 4 George Earle, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Emyr Phillips, 1 Phil John.

Replacements: 16 Kirby Myhill, 17 Rhodri Jones, 18 Samson Lee, 19 Jake Ball, 20 Johnathan Edwards, 21 Gareth Davies, 22 Aled Thomas 23 Nick Reynolds.

Munster: 15 Ian Keatley, 14 Denis Hurley, 13 Ivan Dineen, 12 JJ Hanrahan, 11 Johne Murphy, 10 Ronan O'Gara, 9 Duncan Williams, 8 Paddy Butler, 7 Tommy O'Donnell, 6 CJ Stander, 5 Ian Nagle, 4 Donncha O'Callaghan, 3 BJ Botha 2 Mike Sherry, 1 Wian du Preez.

Replacements: 16 Damien Varley, 17 John Ryan, 18 Stephen Archer, 19 Billy Holland, 20 Sean Dougall, 21 Cathal Sheridan, 22 Danny Barnes, 23 Casey Laulala.
