Preview

Friday night’s clash between Munster and Ospreys will see the sides meet for the first time this season with the teams set to face each other in the Champions Cup next month and January.

Munster are unbeaten in their last 23 home games in all competitions, a record that stretches back to December 2017. The province have won their last 11 fixtures at Irish Independent Park but Ospreys have lost only twice in their last eight Guinness PRO14 fixtures.

After a difficult start to the season that saw Ospreys lose away to Leinster and Ulster, the Welsh side bounced back with a home win over Benetton last time out.

Munster, meanwhile, made a terrific start with victories over Dragons and Southern Kings before falling to a loss away in Bloemfontein to Cheetahs two weeks ago.
