Munster are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated Cardiff Blues utility forward Robin Copeland.
Costello’s side take on Leinster in a reprise of last year’s British & Irish Cup semi final – a game Munster came from behind to win – and five of those involved that day in the RDS are likely to be included in Penney’s match day squad in Montpellier on Saturday.
Reports from France earlier in the week had the small mercy of Brock James and skipper Aurelien Rougerie on the doubtful list but that seems now not to be the case.
Munster will complete their preparations tomorrow evening in Limerick and fly out to Montpelier on Friday morning from Shannon Airport.
