WATCH: Van Graan: "You've got to back your young guys"

Munster will take on Racing 92 on Sunday in an all or nothing Champions Cup clash in Paris.

Speaking to the media this week, Munster Head Coach Johann van Graan cited the “all or nothing” clash that Sunday’s clash at the Paris La Défense Arena presents.

“If we want to progress any further in this competition for this year then we’ll have to win on Sunday.”

While Munster might be facing something of an injury crisis at out-half at the moment, van Graan was clear to back his Academy prospects Ben Healy and Jake Flannery.

“You’ve got to back your young guys and that’s certainly two potential guys that we’ve got for the future.”
