The U20 squad has been in training since the end of June under Manager Alan Miller and Coaches Hamish Adams and Ian Costello. The initial group of 40 players was cut down to a squad of 26 ahead of this weekendâ00s game.
The U20â00s Interprovincial Championship kicks off at the end of August and will run through to the end of September. This is a huge opportunity for up and coming Munster players as they get a chance to contest for places in the Irish U20â00s squad and the Munster Rugby Academy.
Hamish Adams, Munster Rugby Academy Manager commented on the importance of the U20â00s Interprovincial Championship saying â00This U20â00s Interpro campaign is a fantastic opportunity for any outstanding young players to stake a claim for the development of their professional career with Munster Rugby through the Academy and Irish U20â00s National Honoursâ0.
