Munster have big guns primed for URC Grand Final as 30-man travelling squad named

Munster expect to have all their big names fit and firing for Saturday's BKT URC Grand Final clash with the Stormers (5.30pm Irish time).

The Reds have confirmed a 30-strong travelling squad that leaves for South Africa later today to arrive in Cape Town tomorrow.

Conor Murray, RG Snyman, Calvin Nash and Malakai Fekitoa have completed return to play protocols after missing the semi-final victory over Leinster.

Also due to be available are Ben Healy, who started at no 10 in that win at the Aviva Stadium just over a week ago, and Jean Kleyn - with both players due to complete return to play protocols this week, they have both made the plane.

Joey Carbery also makes the trip having been frozen out of recent matchday squads, including the Leinster clash.

Experienced prop Dave Kilcoyne is back in the mix for the first time since Munster lost to the Sharks in Durban in the Champions Cup.

Since then, the Reds have been on a superb winning run away from home and will hope that form continues to this weekend as the province look to win silverware for the first time since 2011.

Academy scrum-half Ethan Coughlan is also included in the travelling squad by head coach Graham Rowntree.
