The action continues on Friday evening at Musgrave Park when the Munster Under 20 side begin their campaign with a tie against Leinster which kicks off at 7.30 p.m.
Munster will be boosted by a credible performance away to Leicester Tigers last week which finished 30-30. Head Coach Steve Forde will be seeking another big performance.
There are two Muster Representative sides competing on Saturday, 10th September, and both teams will play in Limerick. First up will be the Munster Women who play Ulster at Dooradoyle with a 1.00 kick off. Gary Walsh’s side will be hungry for their 6th interprovincial title in a row following their 28-18 win away over Connacht last week and it would be a big shock if Munster failed to pick up the spoils.
Later in the day at Thomond Park, the Munster Under 19 side begin their campaign with a difficult opener against Connacht. This game kicks off at 2.30 p.m. and Head Coach Ray Egan will be hoping that his charges will show the promise they have showed in training and start with a victory.
It is also a busy weekend for the Under 19 back room team as they bring a squad to London on Sunday, 11th September, to face the Exiles in a Group B game at Sudbury, kick off 12.00 p.m.
