Ronan O'Gara and Tomas O'Leary form a potential Lions halfback partnership, while one of Ian McGeechan's most-talked about selections, Keith Earls, wears Munster's No13 shirt.
In the forwards, Jerry Flannery starts at hooker, Donncha O'Callaghan is at lock and both Alan Quinlan and David Wallace feature in the back row.
The Scarlets themselves include both their 2009 Lions tourists, albeit on the bench.
Both fly-half Stephen Jones, already a Lion in 2005, and hooker Matthew Rees have been named among the replacements for the Welsh region.
Munster's eight players named in McGeechan's Lions party last Tuesday was a record for an Irish province.
Only Leicester Tigers have equaled the feat with eight of their squad named in the much larger 2005 party.
The reigning Heineken Cup winners have just three Magners League games remaining this season and are clear favourites to be crowned Celtic League champions.
Munster currently have a nine-point lead over the Ospreys and Leinster, having played the same number of games as their Irish rivals and one more than Sean Holley's men.
