Benetton Treviso coach Franco Smith has made a host of changes for their Magner’s League tie against Munster at Thomond Park on Friday night.

Flankers Benjamin Vermaak and Francesco Minto will make their debuts in the League, with the latter also making his club debut in the green and white jersey.

The dangerous Brendan Williams comes back into a backline that is unrecognisable from that which went under in the Heineken Cup last week. Azzurri hooker Leonardo Ghiraldini captains the side.

TREVISO (v Munster): 15 Brendan Williams, 14 Ludovico Nitoglia, 13 Ezio Galon, 12 Andrew Vilk, 11 Benjamin De Jager, 10 Kristopher Burton, 9 Fabio Semenzato, 8 Robert Barbieri, 7 Benjamin Vermaak, 6 Francesco Minto, 5 Valerio Bernabò, 4 Enrico Pavanello, 3 Ignacio Fernandez Rouyet, 2 Leonardo Ghiraldini (capt), 1 Franco Sbaraglini.

Replacements: 16 Enrico Ceccato, 17 Augusto Allori, 18 Pedro Di Santo, 19 Antonio Pavanello, 20 Marco Filippucci, 21 Tommaso Benvenuti, 22 Tobias Botes, 23 Simon Picone.
