He was named head coach in 2014.Munster director of rugby Rassie Erasmus, speaking at a Munster press conference on Wednesday afternoon, was asked about the decision to play the match and the planned tribute for Foley.He said: We dont want to miss this opportunity for him.

Its not easy either way but we dont want to miss this opportunity.A funeral Mass for Foley on Friday takes place in St Flannans Church in his home town of Killaloe, Co Clare.Ireland and Munster back row Peter OMahony broke down as he tried to put into words what the late coach meant to him and the club. He recalled Foley being as happy with the narrow win in his first game as a 60-point victory.He was a man that wanted a Munster jersey win, he said. Im not going to do him justice here. Its all the words I can say to be honest.Erasmus said: Although an Irish and Munster rugby hero and a great friend of ours, this time its about a husband, father, son and brother and a fallen friend. Let us not forget that.The director of rugby said Thomond held a special place in Axel Foleys heart.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. Thats something thats hugely important to all of us, he said.He would never want us to say that the game is secondary, its just not the man he was, but it will be. Its all about Anthony, now, and this weekend and will be for a long time.OMahony added: The amount that we have lost now that he has gone is incredible -- the rugby knowledge and brain, the man and the friend and coach and brother that we have lost. Its mad.Glasgow coach Gregor Townsend said: It has been a tough week for world rugby. You saw the reaction from all over the world, not just in rugby but in sport.It is such a loss for our game, a huge loss for Munster rugby so our thoughts go with them and Anthonys family.We played against each other a number of times. I think we played each other in the schoolboy teams a long time ago, the Munster games and Ireland.He was aggressive and intelligent too. A really good modern number eight with a great ball-carrying side to his game.I was looking forward to catching up with him. He was always very good after games whether Munster won or we won. As I got to know him more as coaches he would always come up and chat with you and be honest and share what was going on in his world as a coach. Cheap Ultra Boost Mens .
