Beirne and O’Mahony named in Pro 14 team of the season

Despite a disappointing end to the Pro 14 campaign that saw Munster lose out in the semi-finals to Leinster for the second consecutive season, the Province can take some solace in the fact that two of van Graan’s side have been named on the dream team for the 2018/19 season.

In his debut season for Munster, Tadgh Beirne has been consistently excellent in the second row. It is his second consecutive appearance in the team of the season after his performances for the Scarlets last year.

Munster captain Peter O’Mahony is named at blindside. Dave Kilcoyne, CJ Stander and Mike Haley were also nominated for the team but miss out on selection.

In total, there are seven members on the team from the Irish Provinces with Munster, Ulster and Connacht all contributing a pair of players with Leinster’s Scott Fardy also making the cut.
