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.
Those Munster supporters travelling over are believed to be staying in Northampton opting to make the 20 mile journey south on the day of the game. For those not intending to make the trip to Milton Keynes, the bars in Franklin's Gardens will be open on Friday and on the day of the game.
Meanwhile, Courtney Lawes looks a doubt for the Munster game after injuring an ankle in the game at the weekend against Newcastle. Coach Jim Mallinder reckoned his international back-rower could be out for 'a few weeks' but there was some consolation in that impressive young flanker Callum Clark could return to action - having dislocated a thumb against Scarlets - this weekend for their clash with Harlequins.
Further good news is that club captain, international hooker Dylan Hartley has just penned a new three year deal with the club.
