about Munster's squad going into the weekend

"I missed sport big time but it was a good way to look back reflect on previous seasons. It was nice but everyone was itching to get back to normality." 

RTÉ Rugby

"Sport in general was a long way down the list of priorities for a long time but from a player’s point of view, uncertainty isn’t something you’re used to."

"In terms of the schedule coming up, I know that everyone says it is long and to be honest, because we haven’t played in so long, I am just so buzzing to get back on the pitch."

Joe Harvey - Talking Rugby Union

“I think there’s bigger problems in Ireland, not just that whole media thing about coverage around it...for the last couple of years there’s been no sponsors”

Stephen Kisbey-Green - Irish Times

"It'll be a bit weird coming back into it but health and safety of people's lives is a lot more important than sport."
