The second block of Munster’s pre-season training is well underway with the coaching staff of Johann van Graan, JP Ferreira and Academy Elite Player Development Officer Colm McMahon managing the rugby integration up to this point.
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.
The press will get their first chance to chat with Larkham next week as the province have indicated they plan to host a media briefing. In other Rugby news Munster A commence their Celtic Cup campaign this Friday against Ospreys A at Irish Independent Park (7.30pm).
