Classic Munster Clash On YouTube This Wednesday Night
11th May 2020 By The Editor
We have a midweek treat in store for Munster fans this Wednesday night with a ‘live’ screening of our thrilling Champions Cup quarter-final clash against Toulon at Thomond Park in March 2018.
The match will be shown on Wednesday at 7.30pm on Munster Rugby’s YouTube channel, you can watch it live and subscribe for free here.
Johann van Graan’s men had earned a home quarter-final after topping a Pool that included Racing 92, Leicester Tigers and Castres Olympique.
Three-time European Cup champions Toulon arrived in Limerick on the back of a 49-0 victory over Clermont. The calibre of their squad was underlined by the fact that French captain Guilhem Guirado and All Blacks World Cup-winning centre Ma’a Nonu were both rested for that game.
Additional seating was installed at a sold-out Thomond Park for a 26,267 capacity crowd.
Adding to the occasion, Munster Rugby’s nominated charity the Irish Heart Foundation were kindly given the jersey sponsorship by Munster Rugby sponsors Bank of Ireland. Donate to the Irish Heart Foundation here.
