Form Guide

Fifth-place Munster come into this fixture missing a large chunk of their squad to Six Nations duty and with plenty to play for with preferential quarter-final draws for the top four teams. On the other hand, the Scarlets have very little to play for, the Welsh side are three from the bottom of the table with just four games remaining and while a win in Musgrave Park might restore pride it won't make their season any longer.

Munster come into this game after winning their last four games in the league and just two points behind Glasgow in the standings. A bonus point win on Friday night would go a long way in keeping up with Glasgow before they meet the Scottish team in round 16, where they'll have an opportunity to overtake them. A loss at this stage for Munster would be detrimental and Graham Rowntree will be hoping his less experienced players can stand up and take control come Friday.


Scarlets have won just 5 of their 14 games in the URC, as well as that, the club and its players are being widely impacted by the current financial controversies in Welsh rugby with uncertainty surrounding the players and the club's future. Given all this, it will be a very difficult task to come to Cork and win but they'll take confidence in the calibre of players absent from Munster and try exploit the inexperience.

While one should be slow to write off a Scarlets upset, there can be no doubt that Munsters are favourites for this week's game.
