Opinion - 'Try-fest on the cards for Munster versus the Kings' - Donn O'Sullivan

Action from Leinster versus the Kings in November

The Pro14 returns this weekend as the Six Nations takes a break.

Munster Rugby fans welcome their side back to Cork as they face the Southern Kings on Friday night at 7.35pm.

This game might go under the radar in terms of rugby coverage in February as a whole, but the game itself is sure to be an exciting one.

The ‘South African’ experiment is still in its infancy, but one thing is for sure, the quality of the two teams chosen to participate has left a lot to be desired.

The Kings have won just two games of 14, while the Cheetahs are operating at just under .500, with six wins from their 14 games.

Like them or not, the Kings have guaranteed one thing this season, high scoring games, with loads of tries.

The visitors to Cork this weekend have conceded an average of 32 points per game, while also conceding an average of 4.5 tries per game.

So, this Friday night all points to a Munster bonus point win and a chance for Munster's stars to fill their boots.

With Chris Farrell, Andrew Conway, Darren Sweetnam, JJ Hanrahan and Jack O'Donoghue all set to see game time, one feels that the Kings could be leaving Leeside with another defeat in their locker. Sadly, the locker already pretty full.
