Ireland's Rugby Union Players Association (IRUPA) yesterday announced their 2014 award nominations with four Munster players in contention for honours.
The Munster squad flew into Cardiff this afternoon and made their way through a snow blizzard that eased as they neared Swansea. Their intention of visiting the Liberty Stadium was shelved and they remained instead in their hotel (Marriott) on the seafront.
Meanwhile, Ospreys have named their side for a game that they seem pretty chuffed will attract their biggest crowd of the season, albeit far from a full house, with the one change from last weekend, Nikki Walker starting this time around. That means Tommy Bowe switches to outside centre as partner to James Hook.
