Munster are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated Cardiff Blues utility forward Robin Copeland.
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.
