Members of the Munster Rugby squad who did not travel to France used their time on Tuesday afternoon attending the Munster Rugby Talent Camp in Rockwell.
Senior players including BJ Botha, Felix Jones, Johne Murphy, Conor Murray, Donncha O'Callaghan and Mike Sherry were invited to the Tipperary venue to host position specific skill sessions for the underage representative sides that are attending the talent camp over a five week period.

Players from U20, 19 and 18s level enjoyed an afternoon of practical modules hosted by Munster Rugby senior players, drawing from the vast knowledge and experience on offer.

Donncha O'Callaghan and Dave Foley were assigned the second rows while Sean Henry and Mike Sherry looked after the hookers. Conor Murray and Cathal Sheridan attended to the scrumhalves with Botha and Alan Cotter busy at the scrum machine. Niall Ronan joined his former team mate Denis Leamy with the back-row players, and Johne Murphy and Felix Jones monitored the backs.

Video: Donncha O'Callaghan talks about the benefits of such a camp, and reminisces about his own time at that level here.

The 2012 Interprovincial fixtures were confirmed today for the Munster Rugby representative sides and can be viewed here.
