Speaking ahead of the game, Conor Murray said: “We’ve been here a couple of times, haven’t we [needing to win the final pool game]. I think for us as a group, this is our own team. We know we are in control of everything, it’s a good place to be.

“You are coming back home to Thomond, it’s going to be a massive crowd, a European game, and you are fully in control of your own destiny. That’s exactly where we would have wanted to be at the start of the year. It’s a big week. Like I said, we played well last week so we are going to remain positive, and drive it on this week, and hopefully it leads to a performance and lock away a quarter-final.”

“We know the score, we have to go out and perform as well as we can.”

A win on Sunday against in-form Castres at @ThomondStadium would see Munster advance to the Champions Cup knock-out stages for a record 17th time.
