The Munster squad are in to the final weeks of their season with training continuing as players wait on news of possible Ireland and Emerging Ireland tour inclusions.
The squad training session took place in UL on Thursday with the players gathering afterwards at the Castletroy Park Hotel for lunch and end of year presentations.

As is the norm each year the players and management gathered for an informal season wrap-up and players who made their 100th and 200th Munster Rugby appearance during the season were presented with their embroidered caps.

Departing players were also acknowledged at the event with a screening of their Munster Rugby career highlights, provided by Performance Analyst George Murray, followed by a gift presentation and a few words of thanks and best wishes from nominated colleagues.
