With academy players Conor Murray, Mike Sherry and Simon Zebo already confirmed as fully contracted players for next season, first year academy hooker Sean Henry has also secured a development contract.
22 year old Henry will be joined by UCC prop John Ryan who most recently impressed for the Munster development side that were narrowly defeated by the Irish U20s in Musgrave Park.

Other players involved that day included sub academy players James Cronin, Niall Scannell, Duncan Casey, Cathal O'Flaherty, Shane Buckley and Cian Bohane, and all now advance into the Munster Academy for season 2011/12.

Garryowen's Shane Buckley is currently involved in the Irish U20s squad with fellow academy player JJ Hanrahan as they prepare for their first game of the Junior World Cup against England on Friday the 10th of June in Italy.

The academy will return to training at the end of June.
