With the World Rugby U20s Championship looming the annual challenge game between the Ireland U20s and Munster A/Development takes place in Thomond Park tomorrow at 10.30am.

The earlier than usual kick-off time is to replicate the upcoming U20s fixtures in Argentina.

The Munster A/Development side will be captained by Jack Stafford at scrum-half, with fellow Academy players Shane Daly, Alex McHenry (both centre), Alan Tynan (out-half), Sean O’Connor (second row), and Jack O’Sullivan (back row) all starting.

Full-back Jamie Heuston (Garryowen), and wingers Rob Hedderman (UCC) and Colm Hogan (DU) complete the backline.

It’s an all-club front row with Pat Casey (Cork Con), Billy Scannell (Young Munster) and Luke Masters (Shannon) scrumming down together.

Young Munster’s Paddy Kelly joins O’Connor in the second row while Con’s Dave Hyland and Shannon’s Luke Clohessy link up with O’Sullivan in the back row.

Academy representatives James French, Keynan Knox and Gavin Coombes are named in the replacements along with Páidí McCarthy (UCC), Callum Reid (Banbridge), Evan Murphy (Nenagh), Evan Maher (Garryowen) and Conor Kelly (Clontarf).

Munster A/Development: Jamie Heuston; Rob Hedderman, Shane Daly, Alex McHenry, Colm Hogan; Alan Tynan, Jack Stafford (C); Pat Casey, Billy Scannell, Luke Masters; Paddy Kelly, Sean O’Connor; Dave Hyland, Jack O’Sullivan, Luke Clohessy.
