Munster Away To Wasps In Heineken Opener.

Munster Away To Wasps In Heineken Opener.

Munster will open their 2007/2008 Heineken Cup game with a trip to London to take on title holders London Wasps on Saturday November 10th, a game that has a 5.30pm kick-off.

As yet no venue has been announced as London Wasps seek to find an alternaive venue to their own Adams Park whose 10,000 capacity is deemed too small to hold the expected record crowd.

When ERC Ltd announced details today, the draw followed a similar trend to the past two seasons that sees Munster away to an English club in Round One, home to a French club in Round Two followed by back-to-back fixtures in Wales and ending with a home tie against the English side.

Both of the Munster home games that have been finalised leaves them playing on a Sunday at one o’clock (versus Clermont Auvergne and Llanelli Scarlets) while a day and a time have yet to be fixed for the final Pool game against London Wasps in January.
