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.
Meanwhile Munster trained in the University of Limerick today and speaking afterwards Donncha O'Callaghan said he believes that Munster's task will be not much different to what they faced last weekend. " Look this is a real good Perpignan side. They came here to win last weekend. They'll be disappointed that they scored three tries yet couldn't manage that."
"I think we can expect a change in personnel from them but they'll play with the same intensity, the same physicality as they always do."
"Obviously, it's going to be an incredibly difficult venue to play at for us. It is for any visiting team. They have a fantastic record there. But this time around the pressure is all on them. If they lose they're out. So maybe that will allow us try a few things and see how that works out for us."
