Edinburgh turned over Pro14 Conference B leaders Leinster at Myreside last month and look worth a wager to beat Munster in this rearranged fixture at Murrayfield.

Richard Cockerill's charges have also won at Ulster and Dragons during the Six Nations season to move into the playoff berths and they are clearly coping well with the absence of their international stars.

Super Rugby round five verdicts

They have won their last seven home games in all competitions including a gutsy derby triumph over previously unbeaten Conference A pacesetters Glasgow.

Munster are never as mighty on the road during international windows and they lost 25-18 at Cardiff last month.

Cardiff will feel that they have a great opportunity to increase the pressure on the Cheetahs for the third Conference A playoff place when they host Benetton Treviso at the Arms Park.

Back fit-again Blues full-back Matthew Morgan to get on the scoresheet. He has scored six tries this season.
