Munster Rugby and IRFU Referee Department have just completed their very successful joint venture to find the next generation of referees in schools within the Limerick area.
The 23 man squad shows eight changes, including five new caps from the side which defeated England Counties last month in Temple Hill.
Cork Con's Gerry Hurley once again captains the side and he has a new partner at ten as Gavin Dunne comes in for his first cap.
