We speak to Munster Rugby Elite Player Development Manager Peter Malone for the latest Greencore Munster Rugby Academy update.

The Greencore Munster Rugby Academy returned to training earlier this week at their temporary new base at Thomond Park after an extended off-season.

To minimise the number of people at the High Performance Centre, the Academy have made the move to the stadium.

15 players have been confirmed for the 2020/21 Academy – with the possibility of further additions over the coming months. Of those 15, six have been training with the senior squad.

Thomas Ahern (lock), Jake Flannery (out-half/full-back), James French (prop) and Ben Healy (out-half) trained with the senior players for the entire first four-week bloc of training with Jack Crowley (out-half) and Josh Wycherley (prop) joining them last week.

Those six players are now on a down week as part of the senior team’s training schedule.

New additions Scott Buckley and Alex Kendellen joined Jack Daly, Seán French, Eoghan Clarke, Jonathan Wren, John Hodnett and Paddy Kelly this week for the return to training.

Eoin O’Connor (lock) is continuing to rehab a knee injury.
