Munster A’ travel to Nottingham tomorrow for this round 5 fixture

Head Coach Peter Malone has named the Munster A team for tomorrow night’s British & Irish Cup clash against Nottingham at Ladybay with seven Greencore Munster Rugby Academy players included in the squad (7.45pm).

Current B&I Cup holders Munster lie second in pool one, two points behind Bedford Blues, and beat Nottingham 38-7 at Irish Independent Park in October.

The English Championship side are coached by former Munster Assistant Coach Ian Costello and will be keen to reverse that result tomorrow night.

Dave Johnston captains the team from full-back with Nash and Stephen Fitzgerald on the wings.

Dave McCarthy and Ireland 7s international Shane Daly start in the centre with James Hart at scrum-half and Bill Johnston at out-half.

Jeremy Loughman, Mike Sherry and Brian Scott make up the front row with Fineen Wycherley and the returning Gerbrandt Grobler in the second row, who has fully recovered from an ankle injury he sustained against Worcester in pre-season.

Conor Oliver, Man of the Match in the Guinness PRO14 win over Connacht last Saturday night, is joined in the back row by fellow Garryowen man Sean O’Connor and Young Munster no.8 Gavin Coombes.

The Shannon quartet of Duncan Casey Ciaran Parker, Sean McCarthy and John Foley will provide cover for the front, second and back row.

John Poland, Conor Fitzgerald and Ronan O’Mahony – who could see his first action since recovering from a long-term injury – complete the replacements.

Munster A: Dave Johnston (C); Calvin Nash, Shane Daly, Dave McCarthy, Stephen Fitzgerald; Bill Johnston, James Hart; Jeremy Loughman, Mike Sherry, Brian Scott; Fineen Wycherley, Gerbrandt Grobler; Sean O’Connor, Conor Oliver, Gavin Coombes.

Replacements: Duncan Casey, Ciaran Parker, Sean McCarthy, John Foley, John Poland, Conor Fitzgerald, Ronan O’Mahony.
