Rassie Erasmus has made 12 changes to the Munster side that defeated Connacht, for their Guinness PRO12 semi-final against Ospreys tomorrow evening (KO - 6.15pm, Thomond Park).

Departing duo Donnacha Ryan and Francis Saili will line out for the club at Thomond Park for the final time, after the club confirmed today that the pair are set to leave at the end of the season. 

Ryan, the most capped player of the current squad, will link up with Top 14 side Racing 92 at the end of the season. Saili, who is named at outside centre for tomorrow's semi-final, is also expected to move on to another club.

Meanwhile, Conor Murray and Tyler Bleyendaal will resume their half-back partnership at nine and 10, while Simon Zebo lines out at full-back. Andrew Conway and Keith Earls will operate on the wings.

Ian Keatley and Jaco Taute, who have both signed contract extensions with the side, are among the replacements.
