Munster versus Leinster teams named.
There are some very interesting match ups going to take place in this one.
I've been tied up all this week which is why I have not blogged about this derby.
Also, I have not yet perfected the skill of remaining unbiased for such matches, but I will comment on what will hopefully be a great game, next week.
In my absence, may I turn your attention to a Liam Toland piece in today's Irish Times. Again he has shown his detailed knowledge of the game of rugby and applied it sensibly to big match between the Irish provinces.
