The battle for Pool One of the Champions Cup will be decided on Saturday when Rassie Erasmus' men take on Gregor Townsend's Warriors.

Munster travel to Scotstoun to face Glasgow is probably the most mouthwatering tie of the weekend in Europe and Fitzgerald expects Munster to find it a lot tougher in Scotland than they did in the French capital last weekend.

Fitzgerald, speaking in this week's episode of The Left Wing, is tipping Munster for the win over their Pool One rivals if they continue to execute the simple aspects of the game like they have over the past 10 weeks.

He was impressed with Munster's ability to deal with the emotion of returning to Paris just three months after the tragic death of Anthony Foley.

Ireland internationals Conor Murray, CJ Stander and Peter O'Mahony have been central to Munster's stellar form of late and Luke analysed Munster's second try form the 32-7 win over Racing 92 which epitomised the work-rate of the team. He also has a closer look at Andrew Conway's try and the influence of Murray.
