Munster: Andrew Conway; Darren Sweetnam, Sammy Arnold, Jaco Taute, Ronan O’Mahony; Tyler Bleyendaal, Duncan Williams; Dave Kilcoyne, Rhys Marshall, John Ryan; Dave Foley, Darren O’Shea; Jack O’Donoghue, Tommy O’Donnell (c), Robin Copeland

A disposizione: Niall Scannell, Thomas du Toit, Stephen Archer, Jean Kleyn, Billy Holland, Angus Lloyd, Ian Keatley, Alex Wootton

Benetton Treviso: Jayden Hayward, Michael Tagicakibau, Tommaso Iannone, Alberto Sgarbi (c), Luca Sperandio, Ian McKinley, Tito Tebaldi, Marco Barbini, Filippo Ferrarini, Marco Lazzaroni, Michael Van Vuren, Filippo Gerosa, Matteo Zanusso, Luca Bigi, Alberto De Marchi

A disposizione: Davide Giazzon, Federico Zani, Tiziano Pasquali, Roberto Santamaria, Federico Conforti, Enrico Francescato, Andrea Pratichetti, David Odiete

Indisponibili: Allan, Banks, Barbieri, Benvenuti, Bronzini, Budd, Buondonno, Esposito, Ferrari, Filippetto, Fuser, Gega, McLean, Minto, Montauriol, Morisi, Quaglio, Paulo, Steyn, Zanini, Zanni

Thats a decent Munster side tbh, with a strong list of forward replacements. Foley looked to be rediscovering his form of two seasons ago before his latest injury, so hopefully he'll pick up where he left off. Interesting that POM was released back to Munster but doesn't even feature on the bench. Hope it doesn't mean his knee is acting up.

I know Treviso have lost 6 or 7 to Italy, so how good a side are they sending over?

It's hard to say with Treviso, they been on the receiving end of some drubbings this season even with all their international players available! The Centre and halfback partnerships have plenty of experience, there's some good players here and there, but they'll struggle against Munster I think

I have a video message from Cittadini from last year - he urged me to come to Rome for the 6N (we have a friend in common 😂)

Good Italy now

they're in control in what they do. It's not AB Rugby, but it's under control.

Looks like you have a half back partnership. That's very important.
