Leinster Vs Munster is the standout game of the weekend, as the arch rivals meet for the first time this season. Leinster have dominated this fixture over the years, with Leo Cullen’s side winning both games last season. From Munster’s last trophy in the 2011 Magners League final, to Jordan Larmour’s solo that announced him to the stage, to selling out Croke Park in 2009, this fixture has delivered some classic moments through the years, and will likely deliver again this weekend.

Form Guide

The two teams come into this game with two very different form guides. For Leinster, they are the only team in the United Rugby Championship to win all five of their opening games, after a hard fought battle at the Sportsground last weekend. While it wasn’t pretty, Leo Cullen’s side showed they can win a game ugly after a try scoring spree against the Sharks. A solid victory over Munster could lay down a marker ahead of the November internationals.

For Munster, a disaster start to the season made last weekend’s game against the Bulls a must win, and they passed with flying colours as they secured a bonus point win. They will hope to kick start their season from that victory to show what they are truly capable of.


Team News

Leinster come into this game with a number of injuries, with James Lowe, Will Connors Ronan Kelleher and Josh Van Der Flier all ruled out and Harry Byrne are all ruled out.
