Leinster's ecstasy has become Munster's opportunity. We're not quite sure which was heavier on Monday morning: the head that wears the crown, or the hangovers. While the latter will have been dealt with by the time Munster arrive in Dublin on Saturday afternoon, and the southern province question marks surround the former. Will Leinster be able to go back to digging trenches a week a week after sipping champagne? If you aren't going to the RDS on Saturday afternoon to see these questions answered, here's where to watch Leinster Vs Munster in the Pro14 semi-final.
Where to watch Leinster vs Munster?
The game is live on TG4 and Sky Sports Action on Saturday afternoon, May 19th. The game kicks off at 3.15pm, with coverage on TG4 beginning at 2.50pm and ten minutes later on Sky.
How many bodies have Leinster lost as a result of the Champions Cup final?
Injuries are unsurprisingly taking their toll on Leinster from their bruising date with Racing. Robbie Henshaw is definitely out, and there are concerns too about Johnny Sexton and Isa Nacewa, both of whom twinged muscles during the Champions Cup final. These injuries mean that James Lowe is likely to return.
Elsewhere, Fergus McFadden, Sean O'Brien and Josh Van Der Flier are definitely out.
What about Munster?
Munster are in a tricky spot, too: they have somewhat of a crisis at tighthead prop. Stephen Archer needs surgery so his season is over, with Brian Scott and John Ryan already unavailable. Elsewhere, Andrew Conway and Duncan Williams are undergoing return to play protocols with doubts also surrounding the fitness of Niall Scannell.
In better news, there is some hope among Munster ranks that Jaco Taute and Chris Cloete may return from their lengthy layoffs in time to face the European Champions.
