Diarmuid Barron continues as captain for Glasgow Warriors clash | Munster Team News

The Munster team has been named for Friday’s sold-out URC clash against leaders Glasgow Warriors at Musgrave Park.

Munster have named their team for this Friday’s Ultimate Rugby Championship showdown with Glasgow Warriors at Musgrave Park.

There are three changes to the side that faced Leinster last week with hooker Diarmuid Barron continuing as captain.

Jean Kleyn, John Ryan and Simon Zebo were all unavailable for selection due to injury, the trio recently picking up knocks preventing them from featuring.
