Ospreys Head Coach, Steve Tandy, said:

Munster at the Liberty Stadium is always a huge occasion and this week will be no different. We are really looking forward to Saturday afternoon and testing ourselves against a team that have started really well with back to back home wins in the first two rounds.

We know what to expect from Munster, in that theyll be physical, well organised and clinical, and we have to match that. Last week in Glasgow we were certainly able to match another good side physically in a contest that was a real arm wrestle for long periods, we set ourselves up well, but we let ourselves down with that lack of accuracy at key moments that meant we lacked the clinical edge that would have given the scoreboard a different look. 

Back in front of our own supporters this weekend its important that theres a positive reaction and weve all got a big part to play in that, to ensure we can start to create some real momentum for two weeks on the road before we come back here to face the Scarlets next month.
