Munster A face Plymouth Albion at Waterford's Regional Sports Centre this Friday in the British and Irish Cup (ko 7:30pm).
James Coughlan was at training in UL and he continues to be monitored following a knock to his left forearm in Saturday’s encounter.
Head Coach Rob Penney and Captain Peter O’Mahony met with press after training and both are looking for a positive reaction to last Saturday’s defeat and hope the fans will be in full voice in Thomond Park come Saturday 6pm.
Peter O’Mahony, who took no part in the opening round, is looking for a big performance for round two, “We’re putting last weekend behind us and we’ve a big week ahead of us now. We’re after a big session today and we just have to get on with it.
We are not happy with last weekend’s performance, it hurt a lot and we are all proud men so we are just raring to go this week. We’ve a big game at home this weekend, back in Thomond Park, and we want everyone to get out for it. The support is always huge for us on days like this.”
“We never do it the easy way and we have five Cup games left, we are in to Cup rugby now and we have to win this Saturday!”
Head Coach Rob Penney added “It is critical that the supporters are out in force on Saturday night. Our fans are a special group and we would love to see everyone out as a major force this weekend. When the team has its back against the wall and is desperate to do well there is nothing better that the Thomond Park crowd to help them unleash themselves.”
