Munster’s irrepressible form continues after coming from 14 points down to turn over Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium, while a big name heads to BT Murrayfield and the Guinness PRO12.

Here’s all you need to know about this weekend’s action:

Rassie Erasums buoyed by resilient Munster: 

“The brand of rugby the Ospreys play is unbelievable. That’s why the win is particularly pleasing because it’s one of the toughest defensive challenges we’ve had. We’re very relieved.

“The Ospreys were cutting us to pieces and they’re a difficult team to stop. They were running great lines and we made some silly errors in our half. The challenge now is to stop that.”

Les Kiss urges Ulster players to up their game after 37-17 Glasgow Warriors win:

“The players have to understand that if they take their eye off the ball, they’ve let themselves and their team-mates down and a lot of other people here.

“My job is to keep an eye out for that.

“If someone is not in the head space that we need them to deliver, that’s important.

Check out this stunning try from Ruan Pienaar as well in an enthralling encounter at the Kingspan:


Wayne Pivac wants a more ruthless Scarlets attacking performance:

“We definitely left a few out there. Guys were maybe a little bit over eager at times, we made some good breaks but then lost the ball in the tackle and we were probably thinking about wanting to score tries too quickly.

“We were happy to get that bonus point early in the second half. We banked the five points, it was job done in that respect.”
