2014-15 Munster U19s Season

The under 19s won one out of three in the 2014/15 Interprovincial campaign. The campaign started with a 19-10 loss to Leinster at templeville Road with Vincent O'Brien scoring the Munster try with Paul Downes kicking five points. The second game was a bonus-point 30-10 win over Connacht at Clifford Park. James O'Connor, Dan Walsh, Joe White and Ben Betts were the try-scorers with Paul Downes kicking another 10 points. The campaign ended on a disappointing note as Ulster came away from the Mardyke Arena with a 5-3 win with a Paul Downes penalty Munster's only score of the game. Colm McMahon was the Head Coach with Rory Horgan captaining the side.

2013-14 Munster U19s Season

The U19s were pipped to the Interprovincial title by a last-minute converted try by Connacht in their final game. They faced a number of difficult sides as part of their pre-season and ran the Italian U20 side close as they were beaten 25-23 at Musgrave Park with the visitors kicking a last-minute penalty to secure the win. Beaten 13-10 by Ulster at Ravenhill in their first interpro game despite leading at the break. Bounced back in their second game to record a convincing 28-15 win against Leinster at Musgrave Park. A win in their final game against Connacht at Corinthian Park would have been enough to win the championship but a late converted try gave Connacht a 10-7 victory. Academy player Jack Cullen plays in the back-line and the squad is captained by Rockwell's Steven McMahon. Keith Murphy is the Head Coach.

2012-13 Munster U19s Season

Following a successful pre-season trip to London Irish, the team opened their competitive season with a hard earned win over Ulster at Ravenhill. Unfortunately, the team failed to maintain their good form and subsequently slumped to a comprehensive defeat at the hands of Leinster 'Blues' in Dooradoyle. Their concluding fixture against Leinster 'Whites' in Ashbourne also proved disappointing as they went down to a 19 - 23 defeat. Sonny Dwyer (Rockwell College) captained while the coaching duties were carried out by Keith Murphy.

2011-12 Munster U19s Season

The development side had a most successful season - following a drawn match with Connacht, the Exiles, Ulster and Leinster reserve team were all put to the sword. Their only reverse was at the hands of a strong Leinster XV. Will Foley (PBC) and Ian McCarthy (Glenstal Abbey) led the sides, while Brendan O'Connor, Ray Egan, Mossie Lawlor and Ken O'Connell shared the coaching duties.
