THE HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED CLASH between Munster and Leinster on St Stephen’s Day looks set to break the record for a Thomond Park attendance in the Guinness Pro12.

Next Monday’s match between first and second, who are separated only by Munster’s superior points difference, is officially a sell-out as all 26,200 tickets have been sold.

The previous record for a Pro12 clash at the Limerick venue was the 26,100 who attended the 2011 final between the two rivals.

However, due to additional seating that has been installed an extra 100 supporters are expected for this top-of-the-table clash [5.30pm, TG4/Sky Sports].

Ulster host Connacht on Friday night [19.35, BBC NI/Sky Sports] to kick off the festive interprovincial fare.
