The Breakdown EP119: Munster prepare for Racing clash

This weekend, Munster welcome Racing 92 to Thomond Park for their biggest test of the season.

Both sides recorded opening day bonus point wins with another win on Saturday putting the victor in pole position to qualify.

It promises to be an emotionally charged occasion with Donnacha Ryan and Simon Zebo both returning to their former clubs.

Both men are down to start the clash.

With Tom Savage of Three Red Kings, Raffaele Rocca analyses the game in detail, discussing where the game will be won and lost and outlining what Munster need to do to come away with the points.

We also look ahead to the other Champions Cup games invloving the Irish provinces.

Joe Schmidt’s new book is also discussed.
