Munster have named their side to face Ulster at Thomond Park on Saturday (17:30pm).

Munster: D Hurley; D Howlett capt, C Laulala, J Downey, S Zebo; I Keatley, C Murray; W du Preez, D Varley, BJ Botha; D O'Callaghan, B Holland; P O'Mahony, T O'Donnell, P Butler. Replacements: M Sherry, M Horan, S Archer, Dave O'Callaghan, J Coughlan, P Stringer, R O'Gara, F Jones.

Damien Varley quote: “Ulster are on an unbelievable roll, there is no doubt about that. But they have been growing for some time now. It has just clicked for them this season. Their win over Leinster last weekend was very impressive.

“They have some great players up there and they are running away with it at the top of the table.

“But it would be a great way for us to finish 2012 by winning against them. We have a few big weeks ahead of us, Cardiff follow this one and then we have the two Heineken Cup games, two must-win matches with bonus points and all that needed,” said Varley.

He sat out the 16-12 win over Connacht at the Sportsground on Saturday when Munster got back to winning ways after the disappointment of the loss to Saracens.

“There is a lot of rugby to be played this season but we are looking no further than Ulster tomorrow"
