Quinlan declared himself, "delighted to be pulling on that Munster shirt again. Looking forward to the game," he said, " Pre-season has gone really well and I feel in good shape but its a big step up from training, a gamelike this and particularly when it's against a quality side like Cardiff. But nevertheless I cant wait to get out on the pitch."
