Did you know?

Munster have won seven of their last 10 games, winning five out of six in the URC.

An impressive run of form including two victories over Montpellier and a win away to Leicester Tigers saw Ospreys qualify for the Champions Cup round of 16 last month.

Ospreys’ only loss in their last four URC matches was a five-point defeat at home to Leinster in Round 12.

Ospreys have won their last two away games in the Championship, at Cardiff and at Zebre.

Munster have not lost at home in the URC to a non-Irish team since Edinburgh won 18-16 at Musgrave Park in 2019.

Ospreys beat Munster 18-10 last season to end an 11-game Munster winning run against the Welshmen.
