Munster Squad Named For Leinster

A 26 man squad was named today for the Magners League round five game between Munster and Leinster this Saturday in the RDS, ko 6.30pm.

Munster coach Tony McGahan met with media today after the squad training session in UL and he knows more than anybody what “a tough challenge Munster face this weekend.”

“We need to be alot better than last week going into this game and we need to build on each game gradually. As ever this is a local derby and the stakes are always very high but we look forward to the clash and what Leinster represents.”

Looking ahead to the next two weekends McGahan commented “Of course both the games will bring their own challenges but all we need to do is make sure we perform better than last week.”

Paul O’Connell on last season’s Heineken Cup loss “coming up against them ya it’s always in the back of the mind, but we want to really focus on ourselves more than the past, Leinster and the hype of the game.  We have to look after ourselves and not worry about Leinster.” 

“For me this is my first game back and the likes of Donners and ROG were involved last week and they’ll no doubt be looking to build on that.”

Forwards:  M Horan, J Hayes, T Buckley, D Fogarty, J Flannery, D O’Callaghan, M O’Driscoll, P O’Connell, D Ryan, D Leamy, N Ronan, D Wallace, N Williams, A Quinlan.

Backs: T O’Leary, T  Morland, P Stringer, R O’Gara, P Warwick, J de Villiers, L Mafi, D Howlett, I Dowling, D Hurley, K Earls, F Jones.
