After the excitement of last weekend with Ireland claiming the men's and women's Six Nations, both trophies will be on show at Thomond Park tomorrow.

There will be a presentation at half-time during the Munster versus Connacht game at the Limerick venue (5.15), while women's captain Niamh Briggs will also be in attendance.

In her first year as skipper the Waterford woman won her 50th cap as Ireland hammered Scotland 73-3 last Sunday, while fellow Munster native Paul O'Connell captained Ireland to successive Six Nations titles when they also beat the Scots last weekend.

Photo opportunities will be available with both trophies on the day. The cups can be viewed by fans in the in the Guinness Dug Out Bar in the Fanzone Plaza (3-3.45).

There will also be exclusive access to members of the Munster Supporters Club in the MRSC Bar in the West Stand on the day (4-4.45).

Munster star Briggs will then present the Women's Six Nations trophy at half-time of the big game and it is a chance for fans to show their appreciation for this wonderful achievement.

A huge crowd is expected for the crucial clash against Connacht with Munster looking for revenge for their New Year's Day loss at the Sportsground.
