Pro 12 Rugby: Stander Your Man

The second semifinal of this season’s Prob12 Championship takes place this evening, with Munster playing the Ospreys for the chance to take on the Scarlets in the final.

The Irish province start as clear favourites, hosting the game at Thomond Park and with a team packed with seasoned internationals. The Ospreys welcome back talisman Alun Wyn Jones, but have it all to do to stop the red tide. That said, something similar was written last night!

We don’t expect lightening to strike twice, and look for the home team to win going away, helped by dominance up front.

With this in mind we look for media favourite CJ Stander to claim the man of the match accolade. The breakaway is likely to be one of the first names on the British and Irish Lions team sheet, and we look for him to show this form today.

We also look for the forward power to lead to Lions-likely scrum half Conor Murray to score the first try at 18/1 with Boyle Sports.

Recommendations:

CJ Stander to win man of the match at 4/1 with Paddy Power & Betfair

Conor Murray to be first try scorer at 18/1 with Boyle Sports
