With the travel expeditions well underway for Munster's Red Army and over four thousand supporters expected to invade Marseille over the weekend, the Munster squad will depart for the South of France tomorrow.
This will be the second year in succession that Munster and London Irish play each other in a pre-season game. It's also the second successive year they will compete for the Jack Wakefield Memorial Trophy to honour the memory of 3 year old London Irish supporter Jack Wakefield whose inspirational battle against a brain tumour touched the hearts of people across the world. He died on 21st June 2005.
In donating the memorial trophy, the supporters requested that it be contested every time that London Irish played an Irish province in a friendly match.
