Did you know?

Munster have won their opening three Champions Cup Pool games for the first time since 2011/12.

Preview

There is plenty at stake for both teams when Munster and Wasps face off at Thomond Park on Sunday afternoon.

Munster were 35-14 winners when the sides faced off in Coventry in December in a thrilling encounter, scroll down for match highlights.

Johann van Graan’s side are third in the table, one point behind Harlequins and Leciester Tiger, and one point above Bristol Bears.

Since December’s clash between the side, Wasps had their away game with Toulouse postponed with the game declared a 0-0 draw and defeated the French side 30-22 last weekend in an outstanding performance from 14-man Wasps.

That victory moved Lee Blackett’s side into the top eight in Pool B of the Champions Cup and Wasps need a win to guarantee their place in the knock-out stages.
