In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
Although third from bottom in the RaboDirect PRO12 table, they had a good win in the Stadio di Monigo (Treviso) in the final game of the opening phase to add to their latest successes.
Over 48,000, easily the biggest crowd of the League to date, watched Munster against Leinster in the Aviva last time out and defeat leaves them in 3rd place. Saturday's game is crucial given that fourth and fifth placed sides, Glasgow Warriors and Cardiff Blues are both at home and could push Tony McGahan's side out of the top four for the first time in three seasons.
Munster expect to name their squad for the game after training tomorrow.
