Munster in their stride for Ospreys challenge
Welsh outfit still looking to find their feet
Ospreys v Munster
Sky Sports Action, 3.15pm Saturday
After a gentle start to their Pro14 campaign Munster face a step up as they take on the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium but it's a test the Irish outfit can pass.
Bonus-point wins over Treviso and Cheetahs, with 14 tries bagged, may not set Munster apart from the rest come the end of the season, but the red machine are now in their stride while their Welsh opponents are still searching for the right formula.
After a laboured victory over Zebre and defeat at Glasgow, the Ospreys have again shuffled their playmaking options, with Sam Davies starting at fly-half and James Hook, who wore the number ten shirt against Zebre, at inside centre.
Powerhouse number eight Dan Baker returns to the side, while Wales internationals Dan Biggar and Dan Lydiate are on the bench, but it may not be enough against physical and assured opposition.
Tyler Bleyendaal returns to captain Munster at fly-half and he can steer his side to a victory in what should prove an entertaining encounter.
