Lions vs Munster LIVE scores
With a total of five home matches left for the Jozi outfit this season, they will be under immense pressure to capitalise on these encounters to bounce back from a disappointing string of results earlier in the season, but Munster haven’t lost three away Vodacom URC games in a row since 2018, and this will motivate them going into the clash.
“The win against Cardiff was a real confidence booster for us however, we are not getting ahead of ourselves,” said Emirates Lions head coach Ivan van Rooyen.
“The hard work still continues and the intent to improve each week is there. Munster are a fantastic side and have an impeccable record in this competition. Ours will be to play to our strengths and execute the things we spoke about in the week.”
Munster: Mike Haley; Calvin Nash, Chris Farrell, Damian de Allende, Shane Daly; Jack Crowley, Neil Cronin; Josh Wycherley, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Fineen Wycherley; Jack O’Donoghue (C), John Hodnett, Alex Kendellen. Replacements: Scott Buckley, Mark Donnelly, Keynan Knox, Eoin O’Connor, Chris Cloete, Paddy Patterson, Ben Healy, Liam Coombes.
