Where To Watch Munster Vs Castres? TV Details For The Heineken Cup Clash

Munster have made a strong start in Europe this year but the intensity will ramp up this weekend, with the visit of second-placed Castres. If you aren't heading along to Thomond Park, read on for details on where to watch Munster vs Castres.

Where to watch Munster vs Castres? 

The game isn't live on Irish TV, unfortunately, so the only place to watch it is on BT Sport 2, live from 12.30pm on Sunday. Kick-off is at 1pm.

How is the pool shaping up? 

Munster are top after two games, and remain unbeaten - they drew their opening game away to Exeter and then beat Gloucester at Thomond Park. Castres, meanwhile, are two points behind: they took a losing bonus point from Kingsholm against Gloucester and then beat Exeter 29-25, in spite of finishing the game with 14 players.

Gloucester are third while Exeter are currently propping up the pool.

Munster team news?

The teams have not been named at the time of writing. Munster will have Conor Murray available in Europe for the first time this season, but have doubts over Mike Haley and Andrew Conway after both were hurt during Friday's Pro14 outing. Darren Sweetnam and Alby Mathewson are likely to be absent, as is James Cronin.

Are Castres in good form? 

They lie seventh in the Top 14, among the congested chasing pack behind leaders Clermont Auvergne and second-placed Toulouse. Their most recent outing ended in a fairly risible defeat, however - a 16-13 reversal at home to relegation-haunted Agen. They are in poor form, and were fortunate to avoid defeat to bottom-placed Perpignan the week before. The Agen game came at a further cost: captain Rodrigo Capo Ortega was taken off with an injury that will likely rule him out of the trip to Thomond.

So, a reminder on where to watch Munster vs Castres - it is live on BT Sport 2 from 12.30pm on Sunday, with kick-off slated for 1pm.
