In what promises to be a huge weekend of action for players and fans alike, Munster host not one, but two, games of knock out rugby in Cork and Limerick respectively.
British & Irish Cup
The weekend begins in CIT, Cork on Friday night when Munster A host Ealing Trailfinders in the semi final of the British and Irish Cup at 7.30pm. Winning five-from-five in their campaign to date, the largely emerging Munster side are playing their first semi-final since 2013 and looking to reach their first final since claiming the title in 2012.
The next day, Saturday at 5.45pm, a capacity crowd will pack a heaving Thomond Park for its first Champions Cup quarter final in three years. In a repeat of the 2014 quarter final, Munster welcome the aristocrats of European rugby, four time champions Toulouse, to Limerick for what promises to be a heart-stopping 80 minutes of rugby.
The element of the unknown may have worked against the French giants on what was their first trip to Thomond Park last time out, but, with most of that Toulouse side still in situ, they will be all the wiser this time around.
For the third time this season, in trying to facilitate as many supporters as possible, additional seating has been installed in Thomond Park. No less than 26,200 will be in full voice come 5.45pm on Saturday with tickets distributed via clubs, Season Ticket holders, 10 Year Ticket Holders and MRSC members.
