Munster Rugby v Cheetahs on Saturday at Thomond Park, kick-off 5.15pm

The Cheetahs could not get possession or territory and were relegated to the odd counter attack which saw them score a try just after half time through centre William Small-Smith, to give them a glimmer of hope, but their next score would be in the 80th minute when the proverbial consolation try was scored by flank Henco Venter.

The first try of the match soon followed in the 7th minute after the home side won a tighthead and No 7 Tommy O'Donnell crossed the whitewash.

Conway turned in a Man of the Match display in Munster's bonus point victory over Benetton Rugby in their opening day victory at Musgrave Park on Friday last.

In naming a strong bench, Erasmus includes no less than five returning internationals with Niall Scannell, Dave Kilcoyne, John Ryan, Rory Scannell and Simon Zebo all likely to see their first action of the new season.

Munster: A Conway, D Sweetnam, C Farrell, J Taute, A Wootton, I Keatley, D Williams; L O'Connor, R Marshall, S Archer; J Kleyn, B Holland (capt); S O'Connor, T O'Donnell, J O'Donoghue.

Putin warns of 'global catastrophe' in North Korea impasse
North Korea conducted its most powerful nuclear test to date on Sunday, triggering USA warnings of a "massive military response". The Russian leader added: "Whipping up military hysteria makes absolutely no sense in this situation.

Keatley will be joined at half-back by Duncan Williams, who holds onto the number nine jersey.

But the home side made life hard for the visitors, making far better use of their possession to run in two further tries, both scored by left wing Alex Wootton in the 20th and 35th minute, one of which was converted by Keatley.

Francois Venter is back from the Springbok camp and takes over the captaincy from Neill Jordaan.

There was no knocking Munster out of their stride, though, as South African lock Kleyn crashed over for his third try of the campaign and young centre Farrell, spotting a mismatch in midfield, opened his account for his new side. It came via a superb pass from Darren Sweetnam. Keatley added the extras for Munster to lead 10-0 after just 8 minutes. Indeed, with Sergeal Petersen to the fore, a late rally saw flanker Venter's converted effort close out this free-scoring contest.
