WATCH: Johann van Graan on renewing Leinster rivalry in Saturday’s Pro14 semi

Munster go into this weekend’s Pro14 semi final with Leinster desperate to reach this year’s decider as their hunt for silverware threatens to end in failure for another season.

If Johann van Graan’s men beat the current Pro14 champions, they will face either Glasgow Warriors or Ulster in this year’s final in Celtic Park.

Van Graan is well aware of the challenge that faces his Munster side at the RDS and will be hopeful they can reverse the result from last season when the two teams met at the same stage.

“It’s a massive challenge for us to go down to the RDS and play against Leinster. I thought they put in a very good shift against Saracens.

“That’s our challenge, to go and beat the champions in their own back yard.

“They’re such a quality outfit and it will be a real challenge from our side if we were to progress to the final.”
