Former skipper predicts tough test for ABs in Limerick

6:48 am on 18 November 2008

The former All Blacks captain Graham Mourie is predicting Munster will be more than a handful for the All Blacks tomorrow morning in Limerick, despite the absence of their international players.

Mourie led the 1978 Grand Slam winning side, though they lost to Munster, the only Irish side to have beaten the All Blacks.

Mourie believes Munster will be fuelled by their desire to repeat their effort of 30 years ago.

He says it's a very rare opportunity, too, as modern tours are much shorter with few, if any, midweek matches.
