What is required is a little less daunting but simply winning the match would not, of itself, mean that Munster finish top of Pool 5. Only a bonus point win would achieve that, or a win by more than seven points to deny Wasps a losing bonus.
And if Munster were to win and Wasps secured a bonus point in defeat, the sides would finish level on 19 points and the final standings would be decided on the head-to-head meetings according to the following criteria.
a) Match points;
c) Points aggregate.
In that scenario given that the match points would be five apiece from the two games, and the try tally was two apiece when Wasps beat Munster 24-23 at the Ricoh, Munster would need to win scoring more tries, or scoring the same number of tries and by two points or more.
