Looking forward to the game, Wasps Director of Rugby Ian McGeechan said, â00Obviously this is our the biggest game of the season so far, and with Waspsâ00 and Munsterâ00s fine record in the Heineken Cup, we both know the importance of games like this one.
â00Munster are a team with an outstanding European record, we have huge respect for them and what they have achieved in this competition and we will have to be on world class form to get anything from this game.
â00The atmosphere will, I am sure, match the occasion. Looking back on our previous game in Coventry and beyond, our two clubs seem to be able to produce outstanding Heineken Cup games when we meet, and tomorrow will be another big occasion for both clubs.â0
Commenting on the absence of the injured Riki Flutey and Joe Worsley, McGeechan said,
â00Joe is progressing very well in recovering from a neck injury. Rikiâ00s hamstring injury is not as bad as we first thought, but it was just too soon to get him back for this weekend.â0
