Conference A leaders Leinster travel to Conference B leaders Munster this week.

Munster came away from Galway with a win last weekend and will be looking to continue their Intepro form at Thomond Park.

The province’s recent record at the Limerick venue is exceptional, unbeaten in the last 21 games, although Leinster were the last team to defeat the men in red there.

The in-form club side in Europe currently, Leinster have won their last fourteen matches in all competitions, and have also won five of the last six meetings between the two provinces.
