Munster Youths embark on their Interprovincial campaign on Saturday when they host Ulster at Dooradoyle, and will be hoping to win back the title last won in 2003/4.

The squad has been selected from last year s Regional Championship, a competition ran at Under 17 level, where teams representing North, West, South and East Munster competed against eachother. Last season, West Munster won the competition for the first time, and a number of those players are now on this Munster Youth team.

Sponsored by Avonmore Supermilk, the present squad has worked very hard with the coaches, including Head coach, Tom Mulcahy, forwards coach Eddie Montgomery, backs coach Pat Collins and Manager Nick O Keeffe, ably assisted by Regional Development Officer Mark Hickey.

This year the championship is in two phases, with a round robin phase in October and the semi finals and final to take place on the last two weekends of January.

The Youth Interprovincials have been underway for over 15 years, and have contributed greatly to raising the standard of Youth Rugby in the province. As an indication of some of the calibre of those involved, a number of top class rugby players, including Alan Quinlan and Donncha O Callaghan both played on the Munster Youths team before going onto international success.
