And as for the place itself as far as Howard is concerned ? " It's just a field, just 15 guys. There's not as much mystery to it as you would imagine."
Munster have already qualified for the quarter-finals of the competition for a record ninth successive year. A win on Saturday would probably earn them a 'home' quarter-final.
In the event of them achieving that, a venue has not yet been confirmed.
ERC will require that Munster nominate a venue by February 12th but until then there will be no further ticket information relating to the quarter final.
In the event of an away quarter-final Munster will have no ticket information
until mid February.
The quarter-finals are scheduled for the weekend of March 31st.
Munster: S Payne; J Kelly, B Murphy, L Mafi, I Dowling; R O'Gara, P Stringer; M Horan, F Sheahan, J Hayes; D O'Callaghan, P O'Connell capt; M O'Driscoll, D Wallace, D Leamy. Replacements: J Flannery, F Pucciariello, A Foley, J Coughlan, T O'Leary, J Manning, C Cullen.
