Anthony Foley has taken the decision to leave Ian Keatley out of the Munster squad to take on Leinster in the Pro12 on Sunday. The out-half has come in for quite a bit of criticism following recent displays and the Munster coach has opted to use the returning Tyler Bleyendaal at 10.

Keatley trained fully on Wednesday which would indicate that his omission is purely on tactical grounds.
