Cardiff is bracing itself for the arrival of over 40,000 of Munster’s Red Army who will arrive in the Welsh capital festooned in their side’s colours ready to lend their weight to Munster’s challenge
Munster’s team sponsor, Bank of Ireland, is equipping the Red Army as they depart from Cork, Dublin, and Shannon with thousands of red feather boas, bowler hats, baseball caps, t-shirts and flags.
Bank of Ireland is hoping that Cardiff will be a sea of red come 3pm when Mick Galwey leads his men into battle with Leicester in the Millennium Stadium in the pursuit of European Glory.
