Speaking to Kevin Ferrie in the Hereald today he says, “It’s a good thing it’s Munster. We do well against them at Firhill and I really hope we step up our performance this week because we’ll have to because they’re a better, more consistent team than Connacht, so for us to get the win we’ll have to be far better than we were.”
Munster who travelled over yesterday were forced to made some adjustments to their squad when Mike Sherry and John Hayes pulled out to be replaced by Sean Henry and Darragh Hurley on the bench.
They welcome back David Wallace and Lifeimi Mafi for their first Magners games of the season, although Mafi did have a run in the A game against Ulster when he scored a try.
