Munster Senior Coach Stephen Larkham, out-half JJ Hanrahan and hooker Niall Scannell spoke to the media remotely this week ahead of Sunday’s vital Guinness PRO14 clash against Connacht on Sundat at the Aviva Stadium (3pm).

A win will set up a semi-final against Leinster the following weekend.

Hear from Larkham and Hanrahan is the video below with Niall Scannell discussing RG Snyman’s injury setback.

Press Pass | Munster v Connacht

Niall Scannell said: “I texted RG on Monday and he told me the news, which was just really disappointing for him.

“I know the man is a monster and we’ve seen over pre-season that he’s a physical freak, but he’s a young man as well. And someone like me in the squad, who is getting kind of senior now, you’ve just got to recognise that as well.

“He’s come from halfway across the world. He’s a young guy who waned to put his best foot forward for Munster and now this has happened to him.

“You’d probably have to look after him more as a mate, at the moment. You can’t do anything for him as an athlete. He seems like such a positive guy, anyway. I’ve only known him a couple of months, but that’s great to see. He doesn’t seem to down about it and he’s going to tackle this.

“He was in the building for the first time today [Wednesday] and we got around him, and consoled him, but he seemed so positive, which was brilliant. I just hope his rehab goes according to plan but obviously, as you know yourself, it’s just a disaster for him.

“That’s what I’d most focus on – he’s a young guy that was settling into the club and prove himself, and he was certainly doing that in the pre-season because some of the things I’d seen him do in pre-season were athletically freakish.”

The Munster squad will be wearing our new European kit on Sunday, pre-order now here.
