Fresh from their opening round Pro14 win over the Dragons, Johann van Graan and a 28 strong Munster panel departed for sunnier South African climbs as the face into back to back games against the Kings and Cheetahs.
The Kings suffered an opening round 31-27 loss at home to the Cardiff Blues despite leading 13-5 at the break. It was a different story for the Cheetahs who had a resounding 48-14 bonus point win over Glasgow.
Munster face the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth next Saturday and the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Friday October 11th.
