Munster face Toulouse in Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final
The final eight Heineken Champions Cup fixtures have been confirmed‚ with times and venues to be announced in the coming days. Munster face Toulouse in a record 19th quarter-final‚ a feat that will go down in Irish rugby history. In 2010‚ Toulouse beat Biarritz Olympique in the final to claim their fourth Heineken Cup. The Irish side will be aiming for their fifth final. Both sides are in good form‚ with Munster's run of good results over the last month demonstrating that they have the right mentality for this level of competition. Their in-form forwards have dominated the tournament‚ having beaten Wasps‚ Castres and Exeter in the process. Toulouse‚ meanwhile‚ have struggled of late‚ despite the presence of 2021 European Player of the Year Fabien Ramos and other stars. In the Round of 16‚ Toulouse defeated Ulster. Although the Irish side has won all three of their previous games‚ they've been without two key players‚ with Andrew Conway and Tadhg Beirne out injured. Andrew Conway will return to training this week‚ but his availability will depend on whether he's available for the game. Meanwhile‚ Munster's other three players will continue their rehabilitation and will be assessed for their fitness at the next training session. On Saturday‚ the team bus for Munster will arrive at the stadium at 1.30pm. The Munster squad includes Keith Earls‚ Damien de Allende‚ Simon Zebo‚ Fineen Wycherley‚ and Diarmoud Barron. Toulouse's squad includes Thomas Ramos‚ Rory Arnold‚ Thibaut Elstadt‚ and Francois Cros. With the result of this game‚ the winners of the Heineken Champions Cup will face Leicester‚ Glasgow‚ Montpellier‚ Clermont‚ and Edinburgh.
Andrew Conway out
The Irish province has confirmed that Andrew Conway has returned to training ahead of the match against Toulouse in the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final on Saturday. The winger had been out of action for over a month due to a knee injury. Andrew Conway's return to training will come as a boost to Munster as he has not featured since the Six Nations clash with England and the Champions Cup win against Wasps in January. In Munster's previous two matches‚ they had been beaten by Glasgow and Edinburgh‚ but they clinched an important victory over Saracens. In the same match‚ the team doctor was banned for three weeks after being involved in a row with Saracens. This news has caused many people to speculate about Munster's future. Despite this development‚ the team's disciplinary proceedings have been largely smooth‚ and the results have been impressive. The loss to Toulouse was the first defeat for the team in the Guinness Pro14 this season‚ but it should give Dan McFarland and his players some confidence ahead of next weekend's Heineken Champions Cup match. Rob Herring scored the lone try for Ulster‚ while John Cooney kicked 11 points for the home side. The bonus point was converted by Andrew Conway‚ who put the scoreboard on a tense finish to seal the victory. Although Toulouse are currently nine points behind Munster‚ they remain in the race to reach the Champions Cup semi-final. During the first half‚ the Irish side played stoically‚ but in the second half‚ the visitors took virtually every chance they could. Munster led by nine points at the break before the halftime interval‚ but were fortunate to have missed a penalty from Bleyendaal's kick. Munster pushed for a try in the final quarter‚ with Scannell elutying the Ulster defence to touch down.
The team news for Munster v Toulouse is available. Head coach Johann van Graan has opted to rest Ireland wing Andrew Conway‚ while Tadhg Beirne has been ruled out through injury. Fineen Wycherley and Damian de Allende come into the Munster team to replace them. John Ryan‚ Damian de Allende and Jack Daly are also missing through injury‚ while Jamie Sexton will be a late call-up. The other players on the Munster bench are Tomas Ramos‚ Jack Daly‚ and James French. The defending Champions will be looking to build on their win over La Rochelle in the Top 14. They beat Ulster in two legs last year and won the European Challenge Cup. Last month‚ they narrowly lost to Toulon in the Top 14. This time‚ they are hoping for a big performance from their halfback duo‚ Romain Ntamack and Antoine Dupont. Both players are considered the best in the world. The Munster team is looking to continue their impressive run in the Champions Cup‚ as they have beaten Toulouse in four of their last seven encounters. They hope to avenge their round-of-16 defeat in Limerick‚ which ended 40-33. The match is being held at Thomond Park‚ the home of Ed Sheeran. It is likely that the crowd will be large‚ as Munster will be looking to show their resilience in the face of Toulouse. After a ruthless run through the Heineken Champions Cup‚ Munster will face a formidable challenge from Toulouse‚ who are the reigning French and European champions. Both sides have won three of their last four matches‚ so the match will be a deciding factor in the race for the title. The team news for Munster v Toulouse will be released shortly before the game.
