O’Connell & Earls Included In Munster Squad

Paul O’Connell and Keith Earls have both been included in a Munster 28 strong squad for the Heineken Cup quarter final clash with Northampton Saints on Saturday.

Paul O’Connell and Keith Earls have both been included in a Munster 28 strong squad for the Heineken Cup quarter final clash with Northampton Saints on Saturday.

Both players were in Thomond Park Stadium this morning when the squad trained and although neither took part the indications from management are that both will be in the match day 22 when it’s announced on Friday.

Tony McGahan looking towards the game "We realise where we are against Northampton, they’re a terrific scrummaging unit and we need to perform against them. We need to be at our best Saturday evening if we want to get the result."

Jean de Villiers talking about the challenge ahead "This is the crunch time of the season for us, this is the time we need to get the results. It didn’t happen for us last week and we need to learn from that and there is everything to play for."

"You want to build on your peformance and it’s no good having a good individual performance if the team aren’t performing so we need a good team effort next Saturday."

"I’d like to go home knowing I gave it my all and I did the jersey proud, putting in a performance that’s worthy of the Munster jersey. It’s a great challenge and these are the situations you want to be in, playing top class rugby."

Munster Squad: Marcus Horan, Dave Ryan, Julien Brugnaut, John Hayes, Tony Buckley, Denis Fogarty, Damien Varley, Jerry Flannery, Donncha O’Callaghan, Paul O’Connell, Mick O’Driscoll, Alan Quinlan, Niall Ronan, David Wallace, Nick Williams, Billy Holland, James Coughlan, Tomas O’Leary, Peter Stringer, Ronan O’Gara, Paul Warwick, Jean De Villiers, Lifeimi Mafi, Tom Gleeson, Keith Earls, Ian Dowling, Doug Howlett, Scott Deasy
