The inclusion of the young players however, is not a daunting prospect for Scarlets boss Gareth Jenkins, who knows his side need to start performing after a slow start to the season.
"We're under no illusion as to what's waiting for us but we're not at all intimidated," said Jenkins. "A professional side like ours relishes the opportunity to find out where we are."
John Davies added: "Munster at home are always a tough prospect but we always give them a good game and have had a few memorable battles. It's a good place to go and test yourself, especially the pack."
The view at Stradey is that the League is wide open with no one side pulling away.
"Everyone is beatable at the moment," continued Jenkins. "There are a lot of errors and no one is hitting form.
The problem with skills is that you can't really test them until you're playing. It's about reaction time under pressure, decisions at tempo and you can never create that sort of pressure pre season.
"Every September things get off to a stuttering start and this year is no exception."
