WATCH Johann van Graan on the challenge his side face against Gloucester

A win for Munster tonight in their Champions Cup game with Gloucester at Kingsholm would put Johann van Graan’s men within touching distance of a quarter final place in this season’s competition.

However, the Munster head coach is under no illusion with the task that his side face against the Cherry and White’s.

He believes that Munster must get to grips with a Gloucester outfit that has improved greatly since the teams last met in October.

“I think Franco (Mostert) is a real quality addition to their side. I worked with him for a long time. Ben Morgan is playing really good rugby at eight. He is their main ball carrier.

“Their broken field attack is pretty special. They have scored some fantastic tries over the season. It’s a massive game for both sides.”
