A Munster Rugby academy select will take on the Munster U20s this evening in Garryowen FC, ko 7pm.
The U20s continue their pre-season preparations with a challenge game tonight against a Munster academy select side.
After a training camp in Mayo and a pre-season tie against Connacht, which resulted in a 12 all draw, Conor Twomey's young charges are counting down the weeks to their U20s Interprovincial campaign which kicks off on Friday September 3rd.
The academy select side includes players from the academy, sub academy and players from the Munster U19 and extended U20s squad.
