Wet Conditions For This Afternoon’s Game
27th February 2011 By Munster Rugby
It’ll be wet and cold this afternoon when Munster take on Aironi Rugby at Stadio Zaffanella (2pm local).
The brilliant sunshine that welcomed them on arrival yesterday has been replaced by biting cold and heavy rain that is forecast to remain until late afternoon.
Team manager Shaun Payne reports all well in the squad who went through their pre match routines at 10am, the backs in the car park of the hotel in the teaming rain, the forwards opting to remain inside where Laurie Fisher oversaw their lineout drills.
Munster will remain overnight in Parma before beginning the journey home in the morning out of Milan to Dublin Airport where they're expected to arrive shortly after 1pm.
