Quiz: Can You Name The Starting XV From Munster’s Opening Game Of Last Season?

Munster will kick off the new PRO14 season on Friday evening when they host Benetton in Irish Independent Park in Cork.

It’s one of three mouthwatering games on the opening night with Ulster’s clash with the Toyota Cheetahs and Cardiff’s match against Edinburgh kicking off simultaneously at 19:35 GMT.

Following a brilliant season in 2016/17, hopes are high in the province that the team can go one better this time around and claim the PRO14 title.

On the opening night this time last year, they kicked off with a 23-13 win away to the Scarlets. Wayne Pivac’s side were, of course, their opponents for the last game of the season in the league final. They proved far too strong that day when they outclassed Munster in the Aviva Stadium.

We want to know how well you remember that opening night and, in particular, the team that started the game. Try our quiz below and let us know over on our Facebook page exactly how you fared.


The weekend after this, Rassie Erasmus’ side will play their first game against the newly-added South African sides when the Cheetahs travel to Thomond Park. They leave Ireland for the first time in Round 3 for a showdown with the Ospreys.
