Chris Farrell – “There was a home crowd in Cork but a Limerick crowd in Thomond is even more exciting.”

New recruit Chris Farrell is enjoying the early stages of his Munster career and expects big things from the squad this season.

The former Grenoble centre is especially impressed with the backline options, he’s also excited to get to work with the returning Internationals.

“It’s been good so far and there’s a hell of a lot more to come from this team, and from the backline in particular.

“There’s a hell of a lot of talent and especially with the International boys coming back now, it’ll be really exciting to play with all those boys.”

The Belfast man had the opportunity to run out in front of the home fans at Irish Independent Park last Friday for his competitive debut but is more excited take to the pitch at Thomond Park this Saturday.

“I can’t wait to play in Thomond. There was a home crowd in Cork but a Limerick crowd in Thomond in the home stadium is even more exciting.”

Farrell will face a South African club side for the first time as the Toyota Cheetahs visit Limerick this weekend. The centre is wary of the newcomer’s unpredictability in attack but feels it’s something that Munster can capitalize on.

“From far out they have got individuals who can spark things from nowhere, that’s going to be a challenge to deal with but I think their unpredictability can be an advantage to us as well.

“If we can put a few things right that we got wrong at the weekend and make the most of turnovers and counter attack then maybe we can take advantage of that.”
