Munster Rugby Head Coach Johann van Graan has provided an update on the squad’s schedule for the coming weeks as we prepare for a return to Guinness PRO14 rugby in August.

Prior to their return last week, the squad had not been training together since March so their workload is being managed carefully.

Having trained in pods of seven players for their first week back, the squad have been split into three groups this week with no more than 14 players in each group.

All nine new additions to the senior squad have reported for duty at the High Performance Centre. Newcomers Damian de Allende, Matt Gallagher, Roman Salanoa and RG Snyman have joined the squad along with promoted Academy players Diarmuid Barron, Liam Coombes, Keynan Knox, Alex McHenry and Jack O’Sullivan.

The majority of the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy squad have not returned to training to limit the number of people working in the HPC. However, Academy quartet Thomas Ahern (lock), Jake Flannery (out-half/full-back), James French (prop) and Ben Healy (out-half) are training with the senior players.
