While Munster's Irish contingent turn their attention to Paris and the clash the French, the Munster squad switch their focus to RaboDirect PRO12 and five matches that could define their League campaign.
Four of those are away from home, starting next weeekend in Aironi
and they stay on there to play Treviso
a week later.
Then it's Cardiff Blues in Thomond Park Stadium before they head for Rodney Parade and Galway's Sportsground, two March fixtures against sides who will be at near full strength.
Aironi have won two of their last three matches in the RaboDirect PRO12, at home to Treviso and Connacht while Munster have lost their last four away games in the RaboDirect since their 18-13 victory at Cardiff Blues on 23rd September.
They currently lie third in the table ten points adrift of leaders Leinster.
