Clermont Return A Sell Out

Clermont Return A Sell Out

The crucially important return game with ASM Clermont in Thomond Park next Saturday is a sell out and there will be no tickets on sale for the game.

Thomond Park will be packed to its 26,000 capacity for a second time in less than a month and Munster officials and players will be hoping that the packed stadium will generate the same atmosphere as it did on the night of  the All Blacks game as Munster strive to maintain their interest in this year’s competition.

Chief Executive Garrett Fitzgerald  believes that Munster’s renowned 16th man, the Thomond Park crowd, will need to be in full voice as never before. “Effectively, given the competitiveness of this group, there will be just one team emerging. So we need to win each of our next three games and the game against Clermont on Saturday will set the tone. The players themselves recognise the importance of the crowd and we believe that with the crowd in full voice the players will not be found wanting.”

Munster lie in second place in the table one point behind Sale Sharks –  who will be expected to come away from Montauban with maximum points next weekend – and just one point ahead of Clermont Auvergne.
