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


Munster will host Leinster at Thomond Park this St. Stephen’s Day in what promises to be a fiery encounter between the two rivals.

Leinster couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season, as they have won all 11 of their fixtures across the URC and Heineken Champions Cup so far, and they’ll be confident they can continue their impressive winning record against Munster.

While Munster started slowly this season, they have found form in recent times and have managed to climb up to eighth place on the URC table.

The hosts will have the backing of a sold out home crowd behind them, although Leinster have won their last three encounters with Munster at Thomond Park.

Team news.

Both teams must name their match-day squads on Friday at the latest, although they may do so sooner if they wish.

Munster got through their encounter with Northampton Saints largely unscathed, with Conor Murray making his first appearance since suffering an injury while on Ireland duty last month.

Johnny Sexton also returned to provincial duty last weekend, having also picked up an injury during Ireland’s Autumn Nations Series campaign, and the two veterans should be available for the game on St. Stephen’s Day.
