Rassie Erasmus has named his side for this weekends trip to Benetton Treviso. A win against the Italian club would secure Munster a home semi final in the Pro 12. Benetton lie second from bottom in the table so Munster will be confident of picking up the win.
After Munster A’s heroics in the British and Irish Cup last weekend, 6 of those players have been included in the squad. Conor Oliver and Darren O’Shea are named in the starting XV whilst Kevin O’Byrne, Brian Scott, Rory Burke and Alex Wotton are named among the replacements.
Ahead of the game, Jack O’Donoghue, who starts at No.8, discusses the importance of the game.
