This tie is the first of the crucial back-to-back games before Christmas, and Munster will look to keep the pressure on in Pool 4.

Munster hammered Treviso in a bonus point 32-7 win in Limerick in their only Champions Cup game so far this term, because the scheduled clash with Stade Francais the following week was postponed after the terrorist attacks in Paris.

The specially commissioned train service will begin at 7.0am from Kent Station in Cork. The next train leaves for Limerick at 8.0am, with the following trains all departing at 20 past the hour, every hour. After the game, a train will return from Limerick at 10.30pm.

Meanwhile there are still a variety of Munster Rugby ticket offers up for grabs moving into the festive period.

The remaining platinum games at Thomond Park include the clashes with Leicester Tigers, Leinster and Stade Francais.

For the first time ever there are terrace family packs also available, with fans having the option to purchase stand family packs also. The family packs start from €60 and include two adults and two juniors.

These tickets can be bought as part of a three-match pack - one of the Leicester, Leinster and Stade Francais game can be included along with any two other home games of your choice.
