Peter O’Mahony dubs Leinster clash ’ideal preparation’

Munster captain Peter O’Mahony thinks Saturday’s Guinness PRO-14 clash with Leinster at the AVIVA Stadium will be ideal preparation for their Champions Cup campaign.

The Reds are set to travel to Castres on October 15th in their Pool 4 opener.

O’Mahony says a tough game against their inter-pro rivals will focus the mind.

"There is no better preparation at getting yourself up to speed than againt a team of that sort of quality and ability ... it’s a game you want to be involved in."
