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.
Head Coach, Steve Forde has been forced to make a number of changes due to injury, notably in the pack, with captain Miah Cronin the only player to retain the same position from last week.
Forde makes four positional changes with Brian Scott moving from hooker to loosehead, Niall Horan switches to tighthead, Shane Buckley moves from the second row to blindside and Ryan Murphy moving to No.8 for Luke Cahill.
James Rael, Darren O’Shea and Jack Donovan have all been named in the starting line-up.
There are two changes in the backs as JJ Hanrahan moves from the out-half position to centre for Rory Scannell who makes way to the bench. Dolphin’s Eamon Mills will start with Brian Haugh in the half-back partnership.
