Munster hoping to reverse league final flop

LIKE Munster, Glasgow Warriors will be without some of their star players for this Friday night’s Guinness Pro 12 clash at Thomond Park. Memories of the painful defeat at the hands of the Scots in Kingspan Stadium in Belfast last May will be very much on the minds of the home side.
“We want to make sure that we don’t have a repeat of that performance,” said Anthony Foley this Monday. “Glasgow play an open game using slick passes in tight areas and we will have to set out our tackles. We have to just concentrate on our own game and get the result that we want.”
With Tommy O’Donnell making good progress towards his recovery and Peter O’Mahony and Donnacha Ryan on World Cup duties, there is an opportunity for Jack O’Donoghue to make an impression. Likely to start on Friday night, Jack was hopeful that he could benefit: “There is always guys pushing for starting roles in the squad so maybe there might be a gap for me somewhere. We have a bit of a chip on our shoulder about losing to Glasgow after losing the final at the end of last season. We did not do ourselves justice that night.”
With wins in their two opening games, against Treviso and the Ospreys, Munster are in a good position going into Friday night’s game, which kicks off at the unusual time of 6.00pm. Coach Anthony Foley is expected to name his side on Thursday.
