But they now return to Thomond Park, where they have won all their games this season.

Edinburgh, though, are no strangers to winning in Limerick and they were the last Scottish side to achieve that feat with a 14-13 success just over seven years ago.

Their most recent visit in October 2020 saw both sides battle it out for 80 minutes with Munster coming from behind to a claim a late 25-23 win.
