Munster will entertain the Maori All Blacks tonight in Thomond Park as the visitors look to build on their 54-7 win over the USA last weekend.

Speaking to allblacks.com Maori captain Ash Taylor said: "We've heard a lot about the stadium, about the people here. As soon as you really walk in you can feel a bit of a chill about it. I'm not to sure what's the whole thing about it but there's a bit of a chilling factor there."

"It was good just to have a bit of a walk around and have a bit of a look. The boys are really keen to play tomorrow in front of this crowd. We've heard a lot about it and what they bring."

"We've got to really embrace it tomorrow and look forward to the challenge." 

"If you're going to play any club in the world, it would be Munster just with their tradition, the stadium and the crowd that they've got," he added. 

Munster head coach Rassie Erasmus named his Munster team to face the New Zealanders yesterday.

Tommy O'Donnell will captain a depleted Munster team with most of their first choice players away on international duty. 

Meanwhile the visitors have been trying their hand at hurling as they took some time off from training.
