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.
Planning permission had been granted for a permanent stand, however, the downturn in the economic climate forced those plans to be shelved while the planning permission for the temporary stand runs for two years after which it is hoped to put the permanent structure in place.
The project is cost neutral for the Munster Branch as the additional revenue for the seating covers the cost of the erection and hire of the stand.
Following on from tomorrow's game, Musgrave Park will host four games in the RaboDirect Pro12 League.
