History will be made in the HEC this weekend with the first tie being played in Switzerland as Bourgoin switch the tie from the Stade Pierre Rajon to the Stade de GenÃ¨ve in Geneva. Munster will welcome back several key players to their squad with Jerry Flannery and Anthony Foley both poised for a recall to the squad. Alan Quinlan will miss out though following the news that his appeal was rejected against his 6 week ban for stamping, a sentence which did seem a bit harsh considering the stamp wasn't that bad in the first place and he pleaded guilty at the hearing so naturally a shorter ban should follow but the ERC obviously thought it a highly dangerous and serious stamp to give him such a ban. Regardless it shouldn't prevent Munster from getting the job done but be warned Bourgoin at home aren't the easiest proposition, regardless of where they're playing, Leinster can attest to that. If Cardiff can pull off an upset then a win will secure Munster's place in the knockout stages for the 9th consecutive season.
