Clermont-Ferrand -  International scrumhalf Morgan Parra is to play for the first time in two months for Clermont on Saturday after recovering from a shoulder injury, club coach Franck Azema has said on Friday.

Parra, capped 56 times for France and who had an outstanding World Cup for his country in 2011, will start for the Auvergne side in the European Cup home game against Munster.

He injured his right shoulder playing in a Top 14 match against La Rochelle on October 11.

Clermont became the first French side to defeat Munster in Ireland last weekend when they triumphed 16-9 at Thomond Park.
