Maori All Blacks head coach Colin Cooper has made seven changes to the team that will face Irish provincial side Munster on Friday in Limerick.?The side includes five new caps in Reed Prinsep, Billy Guyton and Ambrose Curtis who will start, while Under 20s captain Leni Apisai and Waikato skipper Whetu Douglas will make their debuts off the bench.Cooper said the win over the USA last week was satisfying but they were also looking forward to the unique experience of playing in Limerick.Our exit plays last week were particularly good and I thought that was the edge that we had over the US, said Cooper. We played a lot of rugby in their half. But I think that Munster being another physical pack, particularly at lineout driving time, we will want to play the game in their half.Were expecting a lot of physicality down the back so well be looking to our bench to make an impact. This match is a huge game. I think every player at some stage in their career would like to play Munster in Limerick. We certainly saw the passion of the people here and the stadium being sold out, Ireland beating the All Blacks at the weekend - its got everyone pretty hummed so it will be a mighty contest, Cooper said.Expecting the Irish to get behind their team, Cooper said he was expecting some intense noise at Thomond Park Stadium.The crowd is like an extra, the 24th person. They are very vocal and very passionate so it will be a challenge for us. Ive always admired Munster from afar. The people here are pretty passionate, and certainly people here know New Zealand and they know these players - they are very respectful people.This game is going to be special. Ive always admired Munster from afar and now Im going to be at the coalface of taking on Munster, it will be a great experience and opportunity to lead such good men like weve got in this group.Maori All Blacks team Vs.
