The Munster 'A' squad was announced today for the British & Irish Cup opener against Coventry at Butts Stadium next Friday (7.45).
It includes all those who were involved in the Interprovincial win over Ulster in Musgrave Park last Friday week along with Niall Ronan, Julien Brugnaut, Nick Willams and Danny Barnes who was engaged on that occasion with the Munster Academy side that played The Ireland U20s.

The squad trained this morning in UL under the watchful eye of coach Anthony Foley and his assistant Ian Costello although they had to put their charges through their paces without Felix Jones and Denis Hurley who were required to be in Dublin to train with the Ireland squad.

Coventry gave themselves the best possible preparation for the visit of Munster with 21-6 away win over Birmingham & Solihull Bees last Sunday. They led 16-6 at the break having played with a stiff wind at their backs in the opening half, the only score after the restart came from centre Fangatapu Apikotoa.

Coventry lie in 8th place in the Championship League Table, 13 points behind second placed Bristol Rugby who Munster play next on Friday 27th November at Nenagh Rugby Football Club.

Munster 'A'. F Jones, D Hurley, D Riordan, D Barnes, S Zebo, T Gleeson, S Deasy, D Cusack, D Williams, P Rowley, J Brugnaut, S Archer, D Kilcoyne, D Varley, M Sherry, I Nagle, D Foley, P O'Mahony, B Holland, N Ronan, T O'Donnell, N Williams, J Coughlan.
