VIDEO | Flannery On Resurgent Zebre

Munster face a new-look Zebre side under former Munster man Michael Bradley in Parma on Sunday in the Guinness PRO14 (live on Sky Sports, 1.30pm Irish time).

Forwards Coach Jerry Flannery and Backline & Attack Coach Felix Jones have been preparing the team for the clash since last Wednesday as the squad return to action after a three-week break.

Flannery has been impressed with the progress made at Zebre since Bradley took the reins as their style of play has evolved.

New Head Coach Johann van Graan joined the province this week with his first home game in charge seeing Ospreys visit Irish Independent Park on Saturday week.

Zebre have taken big strides this season and the Italian side feature consistently across the Opta Team Rankings released earlier this week, sitting in the Top Five in Turnovers Won (52), Breaks (90), Offloads (103), Defenders Beaten (172) and Metres Gained (3,746).

Michael Bradley’s side have collected 12 points from eight games and will be eyeing a first win over Munster at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi having already beaten Ulster in Parma this season.

Munster are second in Conference A and will be hoping to secure another win to keep pace with leaders Glasgow Warriors.
