A win is vital if Munster are to have any chance of topping PRO14 Conference A.

Glasgow Warriors lead Conference A with one game to go with Munster three points behind in second place.

To have any chance of qualifying directly for the semi-final, Munster must defeat Connacht at Thomond Park on Saturday, April 27, and hope results elsewhere go their way.

Should we finish second in Conference A we will play a quarter-final at Thomond Park on Saturday, May 4 at 3pm against either Benetton Rugby, Edinburgh Rugby or Scarlets.

Should we finish first in Conference A we will play a semi-final at Thomond Park over the weekend of May 17/18/19 against either Connacht or Ulster.

Connacht go into the game in fine form having won each of their last four PRO14 fixtures. They have already secured third spot in Conference A and will face Ulster in the PRO14 quarter-finals next week at the Kingspan Stadium.

Guinness PRO14 Conference A ahead of the last round of fixtures this weekend.
