Keith Earls, Simon Zebo, Ronan O'Gara, Donncha O'Callaghan, Donncha Ryan and Dave Kilcoyne all return following their involvement with Ireland.

James Coughlan also comes back into the side after recovering from injury, while South Africa-born flanker CJ Sander will make his first start for the club.

Glasgow are also buoyed by the availability of their internationals contingent for the trip to Thomond Park.

Duncan Weir is also back in action and will team up with Pyrgos at half-back. Chris Fusaro, though, misses out after picking up an injury against Leinster.
