<div align='center'> Connacht v Munster</div> Munster travel to the Sportsground looking to extend their lead at the top of the table heading into the New Year. You'd expect it to be a routine bonus point win but given the previous Christmas meetings between these 2 sides it's easy to see another low scoring affair although hopefully not a repeat of the 3-0 matches we got a few seasons back. Only once have Munster managed to get a bonus point win at the Sportsground but given they've got a full strength side out this evening it should make the task that little bit easier. Granted Connacht will raise their game as they always do in the Irish derbies and given what happened last time out at Ravenhill they'll be looking to make amends. Should be a Munster win but hard to say what the margin will be.
