Larkham first Munster Session

McMahon has been appointed Interim Forwards Coach while Graham Rowntree completes his World Cup commitments with Georgia Rugby.

The coaching ticket was boosted further with the arrival of Senior Coach Stephen Larkham at the HPC this morning.  The former Wallaby arrived in Limerick last night and hit the ground running getting involved in his first field sessions today.

The pre-season training squad has also had a new addition with the inclusion of Cork Con prop Dylan Murphy.
