Ronan O’Gara has been passed fit for Munster’s RaboDirect Pro 12 semi final clash with Ospreys.
The Cork man returns to the Munster set up for the first time since the defeat to Ulster at Thomond Park in the Heineken Cup quarter final.
O’Gara suffered a leg injury in that game that has kept him sidelined until this week with Munster confirming their starting side.
Keith Earls has also been included in the Munster starting line up having played for 20 minutes last weekend.
“It’s been a rough season with injuries since the World Cup I did my knee first game back and there’s been niggles with my ankles and stuff,” said Earls. “But I’m feeling good now and just have to get the lungs going again.”
