European Squad Update

Angus Lloyd, Kevin O’Byrne and the academy’s Calvin Nash have been nominated as Additional Players for Munster’s Champions Cup squad ahead of this weekend’s final round of Pool action.

As per tournament rules each club may select three additional players during the course of the pool stages, one of whom must be a front row player. The nominated additional player will replace a registered member of the club's squad (maximum 41 players).

Joining from Ulster on a loan basis in November, scrum half Lloyd comes in for Cathal Sheridan who has completed his short term contract with the province.

O’Byrne takes the place of the injured Mike Sherry after recently featuring for the Munster A’s in their back-to-back B&I Cup wins over Doncaster Knights.

Finally, Nash comes in for Cian Bohane. In his first year with the academy Calvin has made four starts for Munster A and was a member of the Ireland U20 training squad in December.
