Munster are back in action on Friday night as the province travel to Murrayfield to face in-form Edinburgh in a rearranged Guinness PRO14 clash (7.35pm, live on TG4 & BBC Alba).

The game was due to take place two weeks ago but was postponed due to severe weather warnings ahead of the game.

The squad returned to training at the High Performance Centre in Limerick yesterday, see the best photos here from training here.

Edinburgh have navigated the 6 Nations period brilliantly and have won all three fixtures thus far – two of which were away from home.

Head Coach Richard Cockerill has instilled a real winning mentality in the Scottish side and they have started to build serious momentum with late wins over Glasgow, Stade Francais in the Challenge Cup, Leinster and Ulster proving their mettle.

Edinburgh Rugby have won all four Guinness PRO14 matches since the turn of the new year, their only defeat since November being away to Glasgow on 30 December.
