Munster head coach Johann van Graan is relishing Saturday's provincial derby clash with Leinster at Thomond Park (EXCLUSIVELY LIVE on eir sport 1 from 6.30pm), but fears the weather could play a part in proceedings.
Munster are currently eleven points clear of Connacht at the top of Conference B and victory will put them within touching distance of the final.
Leinster, meanwhile, are currently five points behind Conference A leaders Ulster with two games in hand and will be keen to take something from the game to keep their fate in their own hands.
Van Graan, who is looking for just his second victory in nine attempts against Leinster, is relishing the opportunity to put one over on their biggest rivals.
"Munster-Leinster games are always special," he said.
"I'm not a weather expert but it looks like it could be rainy and cold and snowy on Saturday evening so that will definitely play its part.
"It comes down to small moments and guys taking their opportunities. We didn't take our opportunities in the semi-final and they did.
"They are rightly the champions and we're looking forward to playing against them on Saturday evening at Thomond Park."
