Munster v Connacht: TV details, team news and kick-off time


The URC gets back underway this weekend, with the inter-provincial derby between Munster and Connacht the pick of the fixtures.

Neither Munster or Connacht have enjoyed an ideal start to the season, as the southern province find themselves in 14th place after seven rounds, while their western rivals are sitting in 12th.

Munster should be full of confidence after they defeated South Africa A at Páirc Uí Chaoimh during the international break, as they look to kick start their season.

Connacht have won three of their last four fixtures however, which includes a win against Munster in Galway, and they’ll be aiming to back up that result with a triumph in Limerick this Saturday.

Team news.

Both match-day squads will be named on Friday at the latest, although they can do so sooner if they choose to.

Munster’s full international contingent has returned to the province following Ireland’s games against South Africa, Fiji and Australia in the Autumn Nations Series.

Joey Carbery suffered a head injury against Fiji, although he is expected to return to full team training this week, along with Antoine Frisch who underwent a scan on a thigh issue last week.

Keith Earls, Jean Kleyn and Liam Coombes have all returned to full team training, while Dave Kilcoyne’s availability will be determined later in the week.

Connacht will also have access to their international players again, including Bundee Aki, who came off the bench for Ireland against Australia after serving his ban for a dangerous clear out in the game against the Stormers in September.

Mack Hansen is a doubt however, as he suffered a thigh injury during Ireland’s win against Australia.
