The URC gets back underway this weekend, with the inter-provincial derby between Munster and Connacht the pick of the fixtures.

Neither Munster or Connacht have enjoyed an ideal start to the season, as the southern province find themselves in 14th place after seven rounds, while their western rivals are sitting in 12th.

Munster should be full of confidence after they defeated South Africa A at Páirc Uí Chaoimh during the international break, as they look to kick start their season.
