In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
Churchill Cup player and new signing Felix Jones commenced Munster training this week in his respective Limerick base and was present at his first Munster squad session this afternoon.
Academy players were also present at this afternoon's session, and are still participating in the pre season senior programme. Their numbers were boosted this week with the return of the Irish U20s players, Conor Murray, Andrew Burke and Danny Barnes. Peter O'Mahony injured his AC joint during the IRB Junior World Championships and is progressing well with his recovery.
Munster's returning Lions, Paul O'Connell, Ronan O'Gara, David Wallace, Keith Earls, Donncha O'Callaghan and John Hayes will join the squad on August 3rd.
We captured some moments from this afternoon's training session, taking a particular interest in the recent additions - new signings: Felix Jones, Damien Varley and Toby Morland; development to full contract players: Tom Gleeson and Billy Holland; promoted academy players: Tommy O'Donnell and Dave Ryan.
