Ticket & Matchday Info | Munster v Northampton & Leinster
12th January 2023 By The Editor
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Thomond Park and Musgrave Park this Saturday with the Munster men and women both in action.
With the men’s and women’s squads both in action on the same day, the province did explore hosting a double-header at Thomond Park, however, timings did not align to broadcast schedules.
In consultation with the women’s squad, the optimal solution was to play their game at Musgrave Park with it televised on TG4.
See full event info for both games below.
