For the first time this season, Munster head coach Anthony Foley has named an unchanged side as his team bids to secure Champions Cup qualification.

Munster welcome Scarlets to Thomond Park on Saturday, and will mark a milestone in the career of Dave Kilcoyne, who will win his 100th cap for the province when starting alongside Niall Scannell and Stephen Archer in the front row.

Dave Foley and Billy Holland continue in the second row, with the back row trio of Dave O'Callaghan, Tommy O'Donnell and captain CJ Stander – this week historically named IRUPA Players' Player of the Year and Supporters' Player of the Year - again completing the pack.
