Presentation Brothers College Transition Year Students recently completed a Rugby Coaching Course following 11 weeks of modules tutored by Munster Rugby Coaching Officers.
It is fitting the game is in Cork as it played host to the very first Munster v Leinster Schools Interprovincial match on March 18th 1899, the venue then being Turners Cross.
Leinster were successful in that opening game, defeating Munster 6 -3, and the balance is currently in their favour with 58 victories. Munster have recorded 31 wins and there have been 10 draws to date.
