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.
It will be the fifth meeting of the sides this year and McGahan is anticipating "just as close an encounter as the previous ones."
"There has been very little between the sides in any of the games we've played this year and I imagine there won't be any difference this Saturday either. They've copped a lot of flack in the past but you only have to look at their results to see they are a really good side."
"There will certainly be no fear factor for them when they come to Thomond Park this weekend as they showed last year with the ability to win on the road, highlighting that ability with the win over Leinster in the RDS to claim the title, and they won't be giving up the title so easy this year."
