The Sale and London Irish games will both kick off at 7pm.

Leicester have confirmed that special ticket prices will apply for the clash with Munster, with adult admission just £10, juniors £5 and a special family ticket (2 adults, 2 children) £25. Contact the club for further information.

Tigers head coach Richard Cockerill says the Munster fixture can provide a perfect test for his side ahead of the start of the Guinness Premiership.

“We’ve enjoyed some big games against Munster over the years and they are one of the biggest clubs in European rugby,” said Cockerill.

“Munster have a good depth of talent in their squad and we look forward to welcoming them and a decent Bank Holiday weekend crowd to Welford Road. It should be an excellent occasion.”
