Graham Rowntree makes five changes for Munster trip to Edinburgh

Munster have made five personnel changes and two positional switches to the side that beat Connacht for their BKT URC trip to Edinburgh tomorrow (7.35pm).

Mike Haley and Antoine Frisch come into the backline in place of Simon Zebo and Sean O'Brien.

Oli Jager, Fineen Wycherley and Gavin Coombes start in the pack, replacing Stephen Archer, RG Snyman and Peter O'Mahony, respectively.

Eoghan Clarke, academy loosehead Mark Donnelly and John Ryan provide the front row back-up.

Gleeson is in line for his 10th appearance of the
