Munster’s Representative sides
20th August 2009 By Munster Rugby
Over the next coming weeks Munster’s representative sides will return to action as they compete in their respective Interprovincial campaigns and pre-season games. We take a look at who is in action where.
The Munster U20s travel to Edinburgh this weekend to take on Heriots RFC in one of three pre-season games. On their return they will take on an academy select XV and then play UL Bohs on Friday September 4th. The U20s will hope to further improve on last year’s runner up position when they defeated Ulster and Connacht, and lost to Leinster in Donnybrook.
