Live on Skysports 1: Sat 17.45: The Exiles are 4/6 with Bet365 to beat Munster in what could be the game of the weekend.
Munster, the 07/08 winners, are 7/5 with Sportingbet and must travel to the Madejski Stadium with a slightly demoralising defeat to Leinster last weekend. Both teams are top of their respective leagues with the same game records but Munster hold the crucial advantage of plenty of Heineken Cup experience. Not that London Irish are new boys by any standards but Munster have that extra quality to go very far in this competition. The news that in-form centre Lifeimi Mafi has been banned for seven weeks will be a blow for Munster but they are a good back at 7/5.
In the other evening kick-off, Cardiff should send Edinburgh packing back to Scotland with nothing to show, the Welsh team are 2/9 with Betdaq.
