Munster Rugby v Dragons, Irish Independent Park, 7.35pm;

We host Dragons at Irish Independent Park tonight in our final game before the three-week international break.

The West Stand and East Terrace are now sold out but there are still tickets available for the North and South Terraces online and at the gate before kick-off.

Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus has named an exciting Munster in what may be his final game in charge with Billy Holland captaining the side in his 170th game for the province. Full details here.

Duncan Williams partners JJ Hanrahan in the half-backs and is looking forward to tonight’s clash.

“With the loss last week, we would need to turn the tide here,” said Williams. “Friday is that opportunity for a lot of fellas as well who haven’t played a lot in the last couple of weeks, so we will be going gung-ho to get that win.

“Look, I think you lose a few games and people get a bit too dramatic. Munster is more important than any person, so no matter who is there or what is going on at any time, anyone puts on that jersey, all they want to do is win for Munster.

“There are a few lads who haven’t played in a couple of weeks who are mad eager to get out there and play, put up their hands and show what they can do. The Dragons seem to be playing a bit more of an expansive game.

“I know Bernard Jackman (their Irish coach) has a good attacking mindset and his philosophy is to attack from everywhere. I’m sure it will be an entertaining game.”
