Eleven Munster Changes For Champions Cup Quarter-Final

"So I'm very proud of how we performed".

"They were brilliant in the pool stages - two away wins, they beat Newcastle away and they beat Toulon away in the south of France and people started to take notice, even from round one".

When Conor Murray's box kick was carried over the line by Edinburgh, Munster were handed a five-metre scrum, and with centre Chris Farrell filling in on the openside, they won a penalty after Henry Pyrgos knocked on deliberately.

Edinburgh captain Stuart McInally is applauded off the pitch by the Munster players.

Jack O'Donoghue was removed for a HIA while Joey Carbery will be assessed for a hamstring injury. "I think we have to a point, but in the tightest of moments we've got to be better".

The squad travel to Edinburgh from Shannon Airport today (Friday) and will be arriving at Murrayfield at around 11am on matchday. Munster are a great team and we are now able to compete at that level. They're a good team and they find a way to win and we've got to do the same. If we get it right we'll beat them - we've got to front up in these big games. We can't just switch off and go "Well, that's our season".

Over his last 12 games, PG is putting up 26.3 points while shooting 39.8 percent overall and 34.1 percent from the 3-point line. The win was Denver's eighth in the last 10 games, while Oklahoma City lost for the sixth time in eight games.

"We'll try and out-Munster Munster, as we're two sides that play quite similar rugby".

The inclusion of McInally at hooker is the only adjustment to an otherwise unchanged front-row as the skipper packs down alongside WP Nel - a try-scorer in last weekend's bonus-point win over Leinster - and Pierre Schoeman.

Edinburgh were up for the game and the score may have been different if Richard Cockerill's side had shown more composure and opted for kicks at goal instead of shots down the line, but when Munster needed to pull it out of the fire they found a way and it's been the one consistent themes of their Champions Cup history.

Before Earls' winning try, Edinburgh were awarded a penalty for a late tackle on Jaco van der Walt, but the decision was reversed after prop Pierre Schoeman barged Munster's Tadgh Beirne in the aftermath.

Munster - 15 Andrew Conway, 14 Darren Sweetnam, 13 Chris Farrell, 12 Rory Scannell, 11 Keith Earls, 10 Joey Carbery, 9 Conor Murray, 8 CJ Stander, 7 Jack O'Donoghue, 6 Peter O'Mahony (c), 5 Tadhg Beirne, 4 Jean Kleyn, 3 John Ryan, 2 Niall Scannell, 1 Dave Kilcoyne.
