Leinster are, on the face of it, the sensible back at 4/5 (bet365) to add the Magners League Championship to their very recent Heineken Cup win and make it an historic double; the first Magners League team to achieve this trophy pairing in one season.
Leinster players have insisted they are still in the zone and have not let the European success rock their preparations but the fact is it will have had some effect, their is an arguement to suggest they will not be as focused.
Munster, who finished top of the regular season table with 19 wins from 22 games, will be hell-bent on winning this title to add a cherry to a cracking domestic season but they won’t consider simply topping the table as good enough.
Munster have won 9 straight league matches and the feeling is the juggernaut that is Munster’s league campaign will not be stopped by Leinster, despite their recent gong. Thomond Park will certainly be rocking.
At 10/11, Munster are given a 2.5 point headstart by Totesport and the brave, us included, can back Munster at 11/8 with Ladbrokes with a 2 point defecit from their rivals. Certainly the 5/4 (Paddy Power) about Munster is a good bet.
