    Great photo of the best fullback in Ireland.

    Speaking as a Munster supporter, it will be a miracle if Leinster don't win this.

    No Sexton, Henshaw or Nacewa.. week after a massive european win and the emotional slump that will accompany it.. no it won't be a miracle.. yous have every chance.

    Except if James Ryan starts then then you have no chance. :)

    This should be a full on hype train, but I just couldn't care less at this point, don't know why (as a Munster fan). Going on our last few performances, I just don't think we have anything left in the tank or tactics wise to push ye over on Saturday. Just makes it all feel a bit pointless really.

    Hopefully he gets over his shoulder injury and is back for next season.

    Dave does look good.

    I'd say Munster will be hugely motivated for this. They were a bit dejected after the semi final loss but they'll have had that extra bit of time to get the heads straight. If Murray, Stander, O'Mahony, Earls can't get this team motivated and firing then things really are in a bad way.

    A few weeks off and a chance to knock the European champions off their pedestal...Munster are going to be up for this game in a big way. Leinster will want to win it but it's just going to be difficult to get to the same emotional and mental pitch so soon after the final.

    If Leinster win, I think they'll need some silky play as I don't see them bludgeoning anyone up front this time around.

    Leinster are getting over a physically taxing game while Munster have had their feet up the last week.

    Would take a miracle for Leinster to win.

    Henshaw out, Sexton 98% likely to be out, Nacewa uncertain, and Leinster out on the serious beer a week before the game.

    Leinster might still win, but Munster +8 looks like free money.

    I'm growing more and more confident. Leinster down a few players and Munster arrive in the long grass after a week off.

    Munster are definitely favourites at this stage.

    Season was all about europe. Yes beating Munster will be added bonus but not overly concerned about this game tbh.

    it would be a nice bonus, but nothing can take away from adding that 4th star.

    Head coach Johann van Graan is hopeful that South African duo Chris Cloete and Jaco Taute could be back in the mix this week, along with John Ryan, Niall Scannell and Brian Scott.

    But Andrew Conway and Duncan Williams are still going through return to play protocols following concussions.
