Williams Out of Clash with Irish

Nick Williams, who was forced out of last weekend’s game against Sale Sharks at Musgrave Park with a knee injury, will miss Friday’s game against London Irish (Musgrave Park 7pm).

The injury however is not as bad as it first semed with Williams expected to recover after a period of rest although he will have further medical assessment later in the week.

This will be the second year in succession that Munster and London Irish play each other in a pre-season game. It’s also the second successive year they will compete for the Jack Wakefield Memorial Trophy to honour the memory of 3 year old London Irish supporter Jack Wakefield whose inspirational battle against a brain tumour touched the hearts of people across the world. He died on 21st June 2005.

In donating the memorial trophy, the supporters requested that it be contested every time that London Irish played an Irish province in a friendly match.
