RaboDirect Pro 12 Round 20

Connacht V Munster
Saturday 19th April KO: 18.15
On TV: RTE


Both sides come into this interpro on the back of chastening defeats last weekend. Connacht's recent resurgence ground to a shuddering halt away to Ulster, while Munster lost ground in the race for a home semi-final with a 17 point defeat at home to Glasgow. Connacht will be seeking a rare victory over a Munster side who are likely to have one eye on next weeks Heineken Cup Semi-Final away to Toulon but who will also be well aware that a strong finish is important in the Rabo Pro 12 to try and keep their hopes of the title alive.
