5th May 2022 By Leonard Allen
The Munster Junior team could regain the Junior Interprovincial title last won in 2016, when they travel to New Ross on Saturday to face Leinster in the final series of games.
The Munster management have retained the starting fifteen that started against Ulster in Tralee last Saturday that won 39-17 and know that a win may be enough to pick up the trophy.
They currently top the table on six points, Connacht are second on five points and Ulster and Leinster a further point behind on four.
So all four sides are still in contention to become champions, with Ulster facing Connacht in the other tie at Lurgan.
Munster: Jimmy Glynn (Mallow); Jesse Smith (Charleville & District), Willie Walsh (Waterpark), Brian Mullins (Richmond), Keelan Stephenson (Richmond); Tadhg Bennett (Richmond), Conor Kavanagh (Fethard & District); Noel Roche (Waterpark), Ricky Whitney (Kilfeacle & District), TJ Relihan (Newcastle West); Owen Glynn (Mallow), Paddy O’Donoghue (Galbally); Darragh Crowe (Clanwilliam), Sean Glynn (Mallow), Kevin Kinnane (Kilfeacle & District Capt).
Replacements from: Cathal O’Regan (Clonakilty), Darragh O’Shea (Ballincollig), James Collins O’Brien (Bandon), Graham Smith (Crosshaven), Gearoid Phelan (Richmond), Brian Kissane (Clanwilliam), Olly Young (Charleville & District), Niall Leahy (Clanwilliam), Shane Airey (Newcastle West), Ryan O’Connell (Old Christians).
