Continue the build-up to Saturday’s top of the table clash and get the thoughts of Defence Coach Jacques Nienaber as the squad gets set to take on an Ospreys side with the most prolific attack in the Guinness PRO12 this season.

This weekend it's Munster v Ospreys, defence v attack respecitively, although both sides aren't far from claiming the leading numbers for both aspects of the game.

All in all it makes for a huge contest with Defence Coach Jacques Nienaber drawing similarities between the top of the table encounter and test level rugby. The South African will be looking for the squad to make the step up in intensity and physicality come kick off this Saturday at the Liberty Stadium.
