WATCH | Munster’s Season So Far Ahead of URC Final

After a slow start, the province finally found their feet under Rowntree after the turn of the year to finish fifth in the standings.

Munster are 80 minutes from a first piece of silverware since 2011 as they take on the DHL Stormers in the URC final this Saturday afternoon.

The South Africans will have home advantage for the game as they look to defend the title they won against the Bulls last year.

Head Coach Graham Rowntree has named a 30-man traveling squad for the final this Saturday with a number of big returns to the side after they were ravaged in the semi-final with injuries.

It has been an eventful season for Munster as they lost five of their first seven outings in the domestic season. But in Rowntree’s first season in charge, the province have changed their fortunes since the change in calendar, winning eight of their final eleven games to finish fifth in the standings.

They upset the odds away to Glasgow before getting a huge win over competition favourites Leinster in the Aviva in the semi-finals.

Now they face another unenviable task in travelling to South Africa but ahead of the decider recap the remarkable season to date.
