There was a near four-year gap between Dave Foley's PRO12 debut and his European bow but when the opportunity finally arrived at Kingsholm in January, the Tipperary man grabbed it with both hands.
Ian Sherwin commented "It's important that Munster take these fixtures so players are exposed to a higher level of play and I think it's important to assist the Irish U20s in their preparation for the 2010 Six Nations campaign. This fixture provides a perfect opportunity to see academy players and sub academy players come together, and it is a chance for all players to impress."
