Northampton Saints have announced that they will play their Heineken Cup clash against Munster at stadium:mk in Milton Keynes.
Last season's Heineken Cup bridesmaids will host the Pool One Round Six clash on the weekend of 20/21/22 January with the date and time pending ERC confirmation. The 2000 Heineken Cup champions hosted two matches at the stadium en route to the final of last year's premier European club tournament.
They dispatched Ulster 23-13 at their home-from-home in the quarter-finals before overcoming Top 14 side Perpignan 23-7 at the semi-finals stage of the competition in the 21,500 capacity arena.
