This week's Club Notes come from Cashel and Shannon Rugby Clubs.
A total of 45 players were picked as part of an initial squad and will take part in a further trial match on Wednesday, 21st November. The selected players will then meet again at a training camp over Christmas and Easter and take part in an intense Munster Talent Camp Summer Programme next August.
