Squad Update | Internationals Set To Return
27th July 2018 By The Editor
The Munster Rugby squad returned to pre-season training at the High Performance Centre in Limerick yesterday after a three-day break.
Nine of the province’s Ireland internationals are set to begin their pre-season programmes on Monday.
The bulk of the squad started Munster’s pre-season programme four weeks ago and were given some hard-earned downtime from Monday to Wednesday before returning to their season preparations yesterday.
There are now just three weeks until the first game in the Kearys Renault Series 2018 as the season draws closer.
Munster face London Irish on Friday, August 17, and Exeter Chiefs on Friday, August 24, with both games kicking off at 7.30pm. A Two-Match Pack costs just €25 for one adult and it costs just €50 for a Two-Match Family Pack (two adults and two juniors).
New signings Arno Botha, Mike Haley and Neil Cronin have integrated into the squad and will be joined by fellow new faces Tadhg Beirne and Joey Carbery on Monday after their international exploits in Australia last month.
Andrew Conway, Keith Earls, Conor Murray, Niall Scannell, Peter O’Mahony, John Ryan and CJ Stander will be returning to training on Monday too having also featured in Ireland’s summer tour victory.
The Guinness PRO14 fixtures were released earlier this week with Munster’s full fixture list here.
The EPCR are expecting to be in a position to confirm the Heineken Champions Cup fixtures within the next two weeks with Munster in Pool 2 with Castres Olympique, Exeter Chiefs and Gloucester.
