Jack Hunt of Rockwell college will also be taking part in the tournament, however he will be representing Germany over the weekend.
Mark Butler, Munster U18 schools coach believes the tournament will benefit the young players greatly
“This competition is a great opportunity for the lads to experience 7s at an elite level and the challenges that come with it.
“Though the players will be a loss for their respective interprovincial games, I believe that 7s offers a fantastic point of difference for players in terms of their long term development.
“This tournament served as an excellent development tool for Munster players involved last season, while also providing an extra platform for the national 15 a-side U18 and U19 selection.
