The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
With six weeks to go until the RBS 6 Nations, O’Gara has been in inspired form lately, kicking 15 points against Perpignan and will be joined by scorers in that game Denis Hurley and Jean de Villiers.
And Quinlan – who was initially selected for the Lions in the summer before receiving a 12-week ban for eye gouging – believes now is the right time to bleed a new-look Munster.
“The changes freshen things up and brings a different impetus to the side,” said Quinlan. “Connacht have done every bit as well as us in Europe these past weeks and they'll be full of confidence.
“So we know what we'll be up against. These games are never a gimme and they are never easy.
“We have spoken about our form in the league and it is something we need to address.
“This game provides not only the chance to do that but also gives lads the opportunity to put their hands up.”
