A Munster Under 17 combined selection of players from the Regional Development Squad and Munster 'B' Schools recently attended a 11 a-side blitz at Cork Institute of Technology grounds.
The nine week programme will culminate with both camps taking part in an intense, week-long training session in Clongowes. Players from all over the province have been selected to take part in the training, which incorporates outdoor skill sessions and gym conditioning programmes utilising Munster Rugby resources.
Academy Manager Ian Sherwin, Sub Academy Fitness Coach Paudie Roche, and Elite Development Officers (EDOs) Ray Egan and Ken O'Connell, are on hand each day guiding and coaching the selected players through the demanding stages.
The training camp provides players with the expertise and knowledge of Munster Rugby coaches within a professional environment, and is of huge benefit for the development and future of potential Munster players.
