Munster Rugby will look to wrap up Pool 4 and secure a European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final berth as they welcome Castres Olympique to Thomond Park on Sunday, live on Sky Sports.

MPU – In article – English

  • Munster Rugby come into Round 6 with a one-point advantage over second-placed Racing 92, while the visitors in Limerick, Castres Olympique, are still in the running four points behind the Irish leaders.
  • A bonus-point win sees Munster Rugby safely through, but with three out of four Pool 4 teams able to make the knockout stages, and all equally at risk of exit, competition will be fierce.
  • When Munster Rugby and Castres Olympique met in Round 1 at the Stade Pierre Antoine the sides played out a 17-17 stalemate, but Munster will hope their Thomond Park fortress will give them the added edge. 
  • Munster Rugby captain Peter O’Mahony has recovered from injury in time to lead the hosts out, but their defences will be tested by Castres Olympique, the offloading kings of Europe this season, having made 59 already.
