Munster A Head Coach Peter Malone has named an extended 27-man squad for tomorrow's Interprovincial clash against Connacht Eagles at Dooradoyle (ko 3pm - Free entry).
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.
