WATCH: Van Graan on Munster being a better team and squad selection headaches

Munster head coach Johann van Graan believes that his side are in a better place since the last time they played Gloucester in the Champions Cup last October.

The Red Army earned a bonus point victory in that game and van Graan says that everyone is fighting hard to be part of the 23 at Kingsholm on Friday.

“Everybody is really fighting to get into that starting squad. Guys that have delivered Man of the Match performances a week ago or two weeks ago can’t even get into the 23.

“That’s brilliant from a squad perspective and it’s the beauty of our squad. Everybody works together to make the team better. Everybody backs whoever gets selected.”
