The Green and Whites go into the match after losing to Ealing Trailfinders at home in their last outing.

Neil Fowkes takes over the reins for this match and he said, "We are looking to put out a strong team with the aim of performing well and getting a reaction following the defeat to Ealing.  We had a couple of long review sessions following that defeat and there were good things that we took out of them.

"We need to get our processes and performances right, but we're not that far away.  Our set piece was very good for instance and to achieve three tries from driving mauls, and we could have had more, was very positive.

"I'm looking forward to being in charge again and it always helps having the great support of Martin and all of the other backroom team.  You're never just left on your own, we work hard as a coaching team to try and bring the best out of the players.

"Ultimately, we were four undefeated at home before the Ealing match and we just need to get straight back out there and get on with it against Munster."
