Munster have named the same starting 15 for Saturday's PRO12 Final against Scarlets, from the one that defeated Ospreys last weekend.

Conor Murray is set to make his 100th appearance for the province. The scrum-half made his provincial debut in April 2010.

Donnacha Ryan and Francis Saili both start their final games for the province. Jean Deysel, who also leaves the province at the end of the season, starts from the bench.

Scarlets also name an unchanged team from the one that defeated Leinster last weekend. Steff Evans starts for the Welsh side after having his red card rescinded from last weekend's win.

There is no place in the squad for Lions hooker Ken Owens who is still recovering from injury. John Barclay keeps his place as Scarlets captain.

Munster are looking to win their fourth PRO12 title, while Scarlets are looking to win their second league title and first since 2004.
