Foley eyes up top spot

Anthony Foley calls on the services of Paul O'Connell, Conor Murray and his captain Peter O'Mahony in Murrayfield today (kick off 2.40pm, Sky Sports 1) as the season rolls towards an exciting climax.

The aim has to be to rise to the head of the table, knowing it would provide the two perfect opportunities to re-establish 'Fortress Thomond'.

It is an achievable goal that will begin with a testing tie at unchanged Edinburgh, who are on the brink of Champions Cup qualification.

Edinburgh: G Tonks; D Fife, P Burleigh, A Strauss, T Visser; T Heathcote, S Hidalgo-Clyne; A Dickinson, R Ford (capt), WP Nel, A Bresler, B Toolis, R Grant, H Watson, D Denton.

Munster: F Jones; K Earls, A Smith, D Hurley, S Zebo; I Keatley, C Murray; D Kilcoyne, D Casey, BJ Botha, B Holland, P O'Connell, P O'Mahony (capt), T O'Donnell, CJ Stander.

Verdict: Munster
