Although happy with Munster's win away to Benetton Treviso and the marked improvement on the Edinburgh performance, head coach Anthony Foley has identified some areas to be worked on following 'the Italian job'.
Less than five months after playing for Dublin University in an Ulster Bank League Division 1B relegation battle with Shannon, Niyi Adeolokun will earn his second GUINNESS PRO12 start tonight, lining out on the right wing for Connacht against Edinburgh at BT Murrayfield.
Scotland has not been a happy hunting ground for Connacht, with just one win in their last seven visits, but Pat Lam's men are well capable of getting a result against Edinburgh on Murrayfield's new hybrid pitch.
Both Benetteon Treviso and Munster will want to put their opening round performances behind them when they meet in Italy on Friday night. The visitors will also need no reminding that they have not won at the Stadio di Monigo since February 2012.
Munster head coach Anthony Foley has named his 23-man squad to face Benetton Treviso and it sees two of Ireland's summer tourists return to the fold, with Felix Jones to captain the province for the first time.
After a bruising encounter away to Glasgow Warriors, both Sean O'Brien and Ian Madigan sat out training but are expected to be fine for the first home game of the season against the Scarlets this Saturday (kick-off 2.40pm).
The GUINNESS PRO12 began last weekend with a scintillating opening round which saw more tries scored than ever before (33), the second highest ever draw in the competition (Scarlets 32 Ulster 32), and increased attendances at all games resulting in an overall improvement of almost 20% compared to the gates for round 1 last year.
With the match reviews taking place in the respective centres yesterday, the Munster squad returned to the training ground at Cork IT today with the focus now on round 2 of the GUINNESS PRO12 against Benetton Treviso.
