Munster to pay tribute to Anthony Foley before tomorrow's clash with Racing 92
The province are set for a poignant rematch a year after Axel’s passing.

MUNSTER HAVE CONFIRMED a minute’s applause will precede tomorrow’s poignant Champions Cup clash with Racing 92 at Thomond Park in memory of Anthony Foley.

Munster players will also wear the Irish Heart Foundation’s logo on their jerseys for the Pool 4 fixture in what will be an emotional rematch with Racing a year after Foley’s passing.

The southern province last week announced a partnership with the Irish Heart Foundation to support the fight against sudden cardiac death.

“This will hopefully help save lives and if it’s only one it will be more than worth every effort made. It’s an initiative that I know Anthony would really appreciate,” Olive Foley said.

Last October’s meeting between the two clubs was rescheduled, eventually being played in January with Racing 92 supporters offering free accommodation for Munster fans travelling back over to Paris for the European tie.

Rassie Erasmus has made three changes from last week’s draw with Castres as Tyler Bleyendaal and Niall Scannell drop out through injury and Jean Kleyn returns in the second row.
