The two sides met previously in the Heineken Cup Final in 2002 when Leicester won by 15 – 9. They will also meet again in October when Munster open their title defence away on the 22nd.

Munster will be without their International players but Leicester are expected to include Ireland A Captain Shane Jennings, Ireland second row Leo Cullen and new signing Corkman Frank Murphy.
