Munster Head Coach Rob Penney has named a strong starting XV for the crunch Heineken Cup clash against Perpignan at Thomond Park on Sunday (ko 12:45pm).
Esher and Munster met in a challenge game last season at Molesey Road and Munster Head Coach Anthony Foley is only too aware of the challenge that is in store on Friday night.
“Last time we played at home in the B&I Cup we lost, so there can be no room whatsoever for complacency. As an English Championship side with a strong pack we’re in store for a tough physical battle and look forward to it. We played them last season so we have some knowledge of what they are capable of, and nothing has changed in that we still have to go out and win all our games. We hope that the local supporters will come out in numbers and look at some of the younger Munster players in action."
Munster B&I Cup Squad:
Forwards: David Kilcoyne, Peter Borlase, Stephen Archer, Duncan Casey, Sean Henry, Dave O’Callaghan, Dave Foley, TBC, Billy Holland, Tommy O’Donnell, Brian O’Hara, Paddy Butler, Brian Hayes.
Backs: Duncan Williams, Cathal Sheridan, Conor Murray, Declan Cusack, Ivan Dineen, Tom Gleeson, Danny Barnes, Simon Zebo, Troy Smith, JJ Hanrahan, Sean Scanlon.
