The top four Irish teams in the table for the 2017/18 season.
The first half of the season is in full swing and the first two games of the 2018/19 season kick off in Dublin on Saturday and Sunday.
Both games are on Saturday with the game against Munster on the opening weekend.
Both teams are looking to improve on their last seasons performances as well as the ones of 2016/17, but it will be interesting to see if there is any consistency in the way that the teams play in terms of tactics, formations, passing and overall strategy.
As we are all familiar with the fact that the Munster and Irish teams are a bit different in that they have different sets of coaches, there will be a lot of variations between them.
However, as the Irish have so many more options than the Munsters, there is no reason why we can’t see that their style of play is not as strong as theirs.
Munster, like most other sides, will have to rely on their forwards to get the ball forward, and they will be looking to create as many opportunities as possible as a result.
The Lions are a team that can get out of their own half in this respect, but they will also be looking for a number of chances as well.
The Munster side are looking for their first win in their new home environment and they have been working hard at getting to know the players that they will have on the field.
In terms of the style of attack, they will use the ball on their left wing a lot, while also having the option to play it from the right wing as well in order to create space in the middle of the field, which they have done so well in the past.
However, they do have to be aware that there is a big difference in playing from the left wing versus the right one, and that can be a big advantage in terms that it makes it easier for them to get forward and create scoring opportunities.
The left wing also has the advantage of having an easier time controlling the ball, which makes them a lot more dangerous for the Lions.
As mentioned above, there are two games on Saturday, so that will be the first time we see the likes of Michael Cheika in charge of the Lions, while there will also likely be a clash between the sides at the end of the match.
The Lions have a number for their side, so they will want to put pressure on Munster, and there will likely be plenty of pressure in the first half.
Both teams will try to press high up the pitch, but the Lions will be keen to make use of their pace as well, which is why they will try and get back into the game in the second half.
The match is set to kick off at 8:30pm on Saturday evening.
