Munster face a crucial away trip to Kingsholm on Friday night with their Heineken Champions Cup destiny very much in their own hands. Win and they can one more regain control of the group but a loss would put Johann van Graan’s side in a perilous position.
We examine the team selection with Chris Farrell back in the starting XV and identify the key battles that we think will decide the encounter. With all the other Irish provinces facing into huge European games we breakdown Leinster V Toulouse, Ulster V Racing 92 and Connacht’s crucial home game against Sale Sharks.
Also in this today’s podcast we take a look at Conor Murray addressing the rumours surrounding his injury, why the media has no divine right to a players personal information and why innuendo in an information vacuum is unethical and potentially defamatory.
All that plus the other rugby news of the week.
