As expected, it’s a new-look Celtic Cup squad this season with only two players, Paddy Kelly and Charlie O’Doherty, returning from last season.  Both will make their starting debuts on this occasion, and Kelly is one of three academy representatives in the 23 as he is joined by prop James French and lock Eoin O’Connor.

Bandon RFC’s Jack Crowley will captain the side.

Greig Oliver and the incoming Mark Butler will assist Malone this year with Alan Miller continuing in his role as Team Manager.

Munster A:  Rob Hedderman (UCC), Matt Bowen (UCC), Louis Bruce (UCC), Tommy Downes (Galwegians), Ronan Quinn (Dublin University); Jack Crowley (Capt) (Bandon), Charlie O’Doherty (Young Munster); James French (Academy), Scott Buckley (UCC), Corrie Barrett (Garryowen); Kevin Seymour (Garryowen), Paddy Kelly (Academy); Cian Hurley (Clonakilty), David Hyland (Cork Con), Luke Clohessy (Shannon).

Replacements:  Kieran O’Shea (UL Bohs), Aaron Hennessy (Nenagh), Luke Masters (Cork Con), Eoin O’Connor (Academy), Conor Mitchell (Young Munster), Kevin O’Connor (Cashel), Maccon Casserly (Old Crescent), Pa Ryan (Shannon).
