Munster’s 2022/23 campaign under the new coaching team of Graham Rowntree, Mike Prendergast, Andi Kyriacou and Denis Leamy begins on Friday night at Musgrave Park as we take on Gloucester in our first game of pre-season.

Kick-off is at 7.30pm with tickets available here.

It will be the English club’s first fixture since Gloucester player Ed Slater’s Motor Neurone Disease (MND) diagnosis in July.

In the aftermath of the diagnosis, Gloucester Rugby set up a fundraising page to show their support to Ed and his family.

Supporters can donate here.
