Retired Munster Rugby captain and former All Black Doug Howlett is back on board with the province as a Corporate Ambassador.
The pitch at Thomond Park Stadium has been covered since yesterday with Stadium officials confident that the game will go ahead as temperatures are forecast to rise slightly on Friday and Saturday.
The squad was forced to change their training on Tuesday from UL to Garryowen and today they again had to move from CIT to the excellent all weather facility at Colaiste Stiofain Naofa.
The team will be named tomorrow at midday.
