Don't miss the action from one of the best rivalries in rugby, Munster v Leinster
Munster v Leinster live stream: How to watch from anywhere
The suspension of European rugby may have torpedoed much of the rugby calendar over the past two weekends, but it does mean that the Guinness Pro14 were able to reschedule the Munster v Leinster match.
This interprovincial fixture was due to take place on Boxing Day but was postponed in line with guidelines around Covid-19, so now it kicks off at Thomond Park at 7.35pm tonight.
As well as looking for bragging rights over their biggest rivals, players could also enhance their international claims with a good performance ahead of Andy Farrell’s Ireland squad announcement next week for the Six Nations.
Munster will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of Conference B whereas a bonus-point victory for Leinster, who are second in Conference A, would draw them level on 46 points with Ulster.
Both sides are packed with internationals and viewers will be hoping the match is worth the wait. Find out how to watch and the team line-ups below.
Leinster: Mike Haley; Keith Earls, Chris Farrell, Damian de Allende, Shane Daly; JJ Hanrahan, Conor Murray; James Cronin, Rhys Marshall, John Ryan, Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne, Gavin Coombes, Peter O’Mahony (captain), CJ Stander.
Replacements: Niall Scannell, Dave Kilcoyne, Stephen Archer, Fineen Wycherley, Jack O’Donoghue, Craig Casey, Ben Healy, Rory Scannell.
