Referee Romain Poite has had to withdraw from Sunday's Heineken Cup match between Edinburgh and Munster at Murrayfield due to illness.

Poite will now be replaced by English referee Greg Garner, who has impressed in the Aviva Premiership and refereed at the Junior World Championship in 2012.

It's the second successive time Poite has been forced to withdraw from a Munster Heineken Cup game. He missed the Saracens game at Thomond Park in December.
