Rassie Erasmus and Peter O’Mahony fronted the press today in an emotional press conference to announce that this Saturday’s game with Glasgow would go ahead.


A clearly heartbroken Peter O’Mahony said:

He’s been there since the start, every team that I supported he was in it. 

“He was a man that wanted a Munster jersey win.

“I’m not going to do him justice here. It’s all the words I can say to be honest.”


Erasmus stated that playing the match would have been Foley’s wish and that they don’t want to miss the opportunity for the late head coach.

“We don’t want to miss this opportunity for him.

“It’s a tough choice. It’s not easy either way but we don’t want to miss this opportunity.

“As difficult as it will be to play the next game no matter the time the opposition or the venue, we have an opportunity to play there this Saturday. That’s something that’s hugely important to all of us.”

In the video below Erasmus calls on the fans to ‘Come and do it for Axel,’ something which he has no doubt- his players will do also.
