Munster Rugby have nominated an additional 22 players to be registered for the province’s Champions Cup squad.

EPCR confirmed last week that following consultation with the leagues and unions, it has been decided to extend the first registration date to allow all participating clubs to supplement their squads with an unlimited number of previously unregistered players.

Read our latest squad update here.

Tony Butler, Patrick Campbell and Edwin Edogbo, who all recently joined the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy, are among the new additions although Edwin is currently injured.

The remaining 19 are either NTS (National Talent Squad) or PTS (Provincial Talent Squad) members with all 22 under 21 years of age.

The majority of the 22 have featured for their clubs in the opening rounds of the All Ireland League.
