“For many of our schools players, in particular the sixth year students, it is a great opportunity for them to wear the blue and white jersey once more, without the added pressure that comes with schools rugby.”
Speaking about the challenge, Butler added, “It is an unusual game given that we are playing a Munster side, but is also a huge honour and we are really looking forward to it. I think that the spectators are in for an open and competitive game of rugby.”
This is the first of two games that the Munster U19 squad will take part in over the coming week. They will also face Dublin side Old Wesley on Friday 20th of April.
Management and coaches will, off the back of these two games pick a final squad of 26 to begin training in July for the interpro season which will commence in September.
It is hoped that this charity game will become an annual event, with the Munster U19 side taking on the Munster Senior Schools Cup winners each year.
The Munster U20 squad are also continuing their pre-season training. They play a UCC Selection tonight at The Mardyke, kick-off 7:30pm.
