Gloucester are the visitors to Thomond Park this Saturday, and if you're not heading along, read on for details on where to watch Munster vs Gloucester.

The game is live on BT Sport 2 on Saturday afternoon. The game kicks off at 1pm, with build-up getting underway from 12.30pm. The game is also live on free-to-air television - in Ireland, you will find it on Virgin Media One from 12.30pm and it is also live on Channel 4 in the UK from the same time.

Elsewhere, Sammy Arnold is being monitored having suffered a throat injury in last weekend's game at  Sandy Park. John Ryan and Keith Earls are also being monitored as Munster hope to have both available for the weekend's game.

They have 18 points, with three wins, two defeats and a draw thus far. They are a considerable distance from the top two - 11 points already - one of whom are Exeter.
