WATCH: Mike Prendergast talks Castres V Munster with Sporting Limerick

Former Munster player and Heineken Cup winner Mike Prendergast discusses what Munster can expect from a tough Castres team this weekend in the south of France.

Both sides come into the game on the back of away defeats with Munster losing out to Leinster last weekend while Castres went down to Brive.

Castres have only won two of their opening seven games in the Top14 but Munster can expect a warm partisan welcome at the Stade Pierre Antoine on Sunday afternoon. As always, quelling the home crowd early will be important.

Prendergast is well placed to analyse Castres having been pitted against them regularly with his former club Grenoble and also due to face them twice this season with current club Oyonnax where he is the attack coach.

Munster have played Castres 12 times in Europe with 9 wins and three defeats.

You can watch Mike’s analysis in full on the link below.
