First topic message reminder :

So the two teams that are top of their conferences in terms of wins and points accumulated go head-to-head again for title honours.

For Munster, it's been over a decade since they won silverware beating Leinster in the 2010/11 season.

Van Graan has welcomed back about 7 internationals who will be available to play this coming weekend, including Murray, Farrell, Stander, O'Mahony, Earls, Beirne and Casey. Dave Kilcoyne is carrying a head head knock so may be out of the running.  

Whilst they have a European game coming up the following week, Munster will be heavily motivated to go all out to win the title, with Joey Carbery likely to start the final.

Leinster, on the other hand, are seeking their fourth back-to-back title, and have a few players missing for selection including Ringrose, Ryan, and Connors. Cian Kelleher, Jimmy O'Brien, Doris, Leavy, Deegan and Conor O'Brien are also out.

For once, Munster may have the upper hand, not least because test players such as O'Mahony and Murray will be more rested than the likes of Henshaw, Keenan or Sexton.

TEAMS
Leinster: Hugo Keenan; Jordan Larmour, Rory O’Loughlin, Robbie Henshaw, Dave Kearney; Ross Byrne, Luke McGrath (capt); Cian Healy, Rónan Kelleher, Andrew Porter; Devin Toner, Scott Fardy; Rhys Ruddock, Josh van der Flier, Jack Conan.

Replacements: James Tracy, Ed Byrne, Tadhg Furlong, Ross Molony, Ryan Baird, Jamison Gibson-Park, Johnny Sexton, James Lowe.

Munster: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Damian de Allende, Keith Earls; Joey Carbery, Conor Murray; James Cronin, Niall Scannell, John Ryan; Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne; Gavin Coombes, Peter O’Mahony (capt), CJ Stander.

Replacements: Kevin O’Byrne, Dave Kilcoyne, Stephen Archer, Billy Holland, Jack O’Donoghue, Craig Casey, JJ Hanrahan, Rory Scannell.

Referee: Mike Adamson (SRU).

TV: EirSport, Premier Sport, TG4

Luke McGrath is so frustrating with his slow centipede getting to told to use it every time in his 22.

Well done Leinster.

Munster need the Ulster flair at least once. Never looked like getting to the line.

Says it all really when not any of the Leinster team even jump in the air at final whistle. It’s just routine for them now.

57 players used to get to today says Luke McGrath. Their senior squad has 46 players plus 4 amateur club players on short-term loan to cover long term injury absentees. 9 academy players used.

Henshaw, Conan and Ruddock were superb. Great engines.

We all hope the Bulls beat them.

While it's a pain Leinster forces the other teams to improve to catch them. I'm not sure if Munster tried to hard to match them or were to scared to try something but it wasn't great.

Munster will win when Covid is eradicate, so 2030 at this stage

A little humility wouldn't go amiss.

Leinster weren't good enough to score more.

They were pretty poor to be fair, never looked like scoring. I honestly thought they would be more of a challenge.

Symptom of too few locals in the team? Hard to understand why this Munster team isnt better.

Well done leinster.

I saw that Van Grann record against leinster is 9 losses from 10. Groundhog day again. Bullying weakened pro14 sides is only deluding people. Every game is about bullying sides up front. He keeps trying to do that against Leinster which is the definition of insanity.
