Fine form: Peter O'Mahony

Ireland flanker Peter O'Mahony is excited about returning to the Aviva Stadium for this week's Pro12 clash between Munster and Leinster.

The fixture between the top two sides in the league is a sell-out, with several Irish internationals who won the Six Nations title earlier this month in action.

O'Mahony enjoyed an outstanding tournament with Ireland and now returns to an action-packed couple of weeks with his province, with Dublin this weekend followed by a home Heineken Cup quarter-final against Toulouse.

"I love playing in the Aviva, it's a great stadium and a sell-out at the weekend. It's going to be a savage atmosphere so it's going to be a big occasion," said O'Mahony.

"I'm firmly in Munster mode now and I've really enjoyed getting back.

"They (the Munster squad) are such a great group of lads as well, they're a pleasure to work with and welcomed us back."

Munster head coach Rob Penney's focus is on picking up an away win against Leinster for the first time in six years.

"We haven't beaten Leinster away since 2008 I think which is disappointing, but it will be a big occasion," said Penney.

"It's the same every time we play each other, we probably know each other that little bit more than anyone else."
