Leicester have seen and done most things in Europe over the years, but their England flanker Lewis Moody admits the next two weeks will be the toughest challenge of their careers…

In order to qualify for the quarter-finals, he believes the Tigers need to earn a bonus point in beating Cardiff Blues this weekend – ready for the challenge of Munster in Thomond Park.
 
.. Although Moody played in the Leicester side who beat Munster at the Millennium Stadium to left the Heineken Cup in 2002, he knows how invinvcible the Irish side are on their home patch.
 
Leicester trail Munster by four points in Pool 4. They face the Blues on Saturday, while Munster travel to Bourgoin for Sunday’s game. Both will be favourites to win, setting up the final weekend when the defending champions meet the two-time former winners at Thomond Park.
 
“It’s a difficult situation,” he admitted. “Munster are a good few points ahead of us.
 
“We’ve got to play Cardiff at home and they are a tough side, we only just beat them at the Millennium Stadium. We have to get a bonus point from that game as well if we want to be confident going into the final game in Munster knowing a win would put us top.
 
“Having said that, I don’t think anyone has beaten Munster at home in the Heineken Cup so it will be one of the toughest challenges of our careers.”
