    Benetton Rugby:
    15 Jayden Hayward, 14 Ratuva Tavuyara, 13 Tommaso Benvenuti, 12 Marco Zanon, 11 Monty Ioane, 10 Tommaso Allan (C), 9 Dewaldt Duvenage,
    8 Toa Halafihi, 7 Abraham Steyn, 6 Sebastian Negri, 5 Federico Ruzza, 4 Irné Herbst, 3 Marco Riccioni, 2 Luca Bigi, 1 Nicola Quaglio.

    Substitutes: 16 Hame Faiva, 17 Cherif Traore, 18 Simone Ferrari, 19 Marco Lazzaroni, 20 Giovanni Pettinelli, 21 Tito Tebaldi, 22 Antonio Rizzi, 23 Tommaso Iannone

    Munster:
    Mike Haley; Darren Sweetnam, Sammy Arnold, Dan Goggin, Shane Daly; JJ Hanrahan, Alby Mathewson;
    Jeremy Loughman, Rhys Marshall, Stephen Archer; Fineen Wycherley, Billy Holland (C); Jack O’Donoghue, Chris Cloete, Gavin Coombes.

    Replacements: Kevin O’Byrne, Liam O’Connor, Ciaran Parker, Darren O’Shea, Dave O’Callaghan, Neil Cronin, Bill Johnston, Alex McHenry.

    A mostly second string lineup, with 11 changes from the win over Cardiff, travels to an in-form Benetton side and will be up against it. They trail Glasgow by three points in Conference A and will also hope that Leinster can do them a favour on Saturday by defeating the Scottish side. Academy centre Alex McHenry is named on the bench for his debut appearance. Dave O'Callaghan could make his final appearance for Munster.

    Still a strong enough side...you'd expect approx 11 of those to make a Heineken cup match day 23

    Can’t see that team being strong enough to win over there. Leinster might do Munster a favour but good opportunity for Glasgow to effectively wrap up conference this weekend now. Even if they gained a point on Munster over the two games, that would probably be enough.

    is match on 7 or 8? , and I don't think eir are showing it


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 14,138 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Zzippy


    Tavuyara to beat 73 defenders and score the winning try


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,365 ✭✭✭✭ Podge_irl


    Treviso win this and they are basically in the playoffs with a home game against Zebre coming up. Can't see them slipping up against that Munster team.

    7pm Irish time

    It's on Freesports if you have a satellite dish. Otherwise the Eir Sport app or Eir Sport facebook and Twitter pages are carrying it. It is not on the regular Eir Sports channels

    Any idea who commentates on Free Sports?.. never actually watched anything on it


  • Moderators, Technology & Internet Moderators Posts: 10,543 Mod ✭✭✭✭ icdg


    They are part of Premier Sports and use the same commentators - in fact it will likely be the normal eir Sport crew.

    Just for anyone that might miss the live coverage of Benetton v Munster, TG4 are playing highlights tonight at 10:55PM, which will also include highlights of Edinburgh v Ulster.
    Also, Eir Sport 2 are showing deferred coverage of the full match at 10PM tonight, and Eir Sport 1 are repeating the full match at 00:30AM Sat morning, and again at 12:15PM on Saturday afternoon.

    Sorry I'm not able to edit the thread title to 7pm. If a mod could do it that would be great.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    Conditions look good for tonight, temperature 12-14c.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,231 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    I like the way they have staggered the match start times this evening, 6:30 kick off is going to be problematic for supporters in the Kings game but the Munster / Ulster games only partially overlapping is ideal.

    Partially overlapping? The kick offs are only 35mins apart.

    Exactly, partial. You get 35 mins of the warm-up game before switching over to the main event... ;)

    And half time of both matches is also overlapping - so more like 50 minutes.

    This is listed on the extra channel on the app but not streaming it. Eir sports are doing themselves no favours.
