WATCH: Kilcoyne ready to do battle with Racing 92

Dave Kilcoyne is expecting an “incredible confrontation battle” in the front row when Munster welcome Racing 92 to Thomond Park this weekend.

Munster are on the hunt for their first win in the European Cup following their draw with Castres last Sunday, a game in which the prop feels Munster let themselves down.

“We could have won the game. We probably should have won the game but equally we could have lost the game”.

“Our discipline at the end, especially on my behalf, you know, we let ourselves down there.”

Kilcoyne predicts former Glasgow Warriors star, Leone Nakarawa will cause Munster difficulties in the second row while he anticipates that Ben Arous and Ben Tameifuna will ensure a huge battle up front.

Munster v Racing 92 kicks off at 5.30pm on Saturday in Thomond Park.
