Looking ahead to Saturday's game coach Paul Turner said, "Cork is always a daunting place to go to, as daunting as Thomond Park and we have to be up for the challenge. I feel we have come a long way this season and now is the time that the squad comes to the fore. We need to establish a level of performance that will take us into the last three games where we face two of our local rivals and in-between Irish province Connacht. Players have been made aware that a good performance is vital and hopefully we can move up the table. On behalf of the squad I would like to thank the great support we had in Clermont, we were disappointed with our first twenty minutes but again with a little bit more smartness and more used to that intensity our day will come."
Squad: Martin Thomas, Kevin Morgan, Gareth Wyatt, Richard Fussell, Aled Brew, Paul Emerick, Phil Dollman, Ceri Sweeney, Aled Thomas, Alex Walker, Gareth Chapman, Adam Black, David Maddocks, Ben Daly, Steve Jones, Rhys Thomas, Jamie Corsi, Andrew Hall, Ian Gough, Peter Sidoli, Luke Charteris, Joe Bearman, Jamie Ringer, Michael Owen.
