Munster To Play Castres In Toulouse
22nd September 2011 By Munster Rugby
Munster will play their November 19th Heineken Cup Pool 1 second round game against Castres-Olympique in the Stade Ernest Wallon in Toulouse and not at Castres’ Stade Pierre Antoine.
The capacity at Stade Pierre-Antoine is 10,000 while the Stade Ernest Wallon can accommodate 18754, and is also where Castres intend to play one of their Top 14 games.
Meanwhile the Munster squad landed in a bright and sunny Bristol Airport just before 5pm today en route to Cardiff where they play the fourth placed Blues in RaboDirect PRO12 round 4 tomorrow evening (7.05pm).
Absent from the squad was BJ Botha who pulled up in training yesterday with a slight calf strain that still remained troublesome this morning with managment withdrawing him as a precautionary measure.
