Munster returned to training for the first time since March, just two months before the season is scheduled to restart.
For CEO Ian Flanagan, a lot of work has been put in across various sectors to ensure this safe return, something which he is very grateful for.
With the resumption on the horizon, Flanagan says the squad are focused on the task at hand.
“I think everyone in the country is looking forward to sport returning in a meaningful way as a sign of normal life returning. A huge amount of credit must go to the government and the groups that have agreed on the protocols that have allowed us to come back.
“We were back training in the HPC for the first time since March this week and we are hopeful that those games in August will go ahead as scheduled.
“We are not taking anything for granted and our job is to make sure we do what we can in those two games to make it to a Pro 14 semi-final.”
Flanagan also spoke about the financial aspect of the virus which has seen the naming rights for Thomond Park become a potential option.
“The naming rights to Thomond Park is certainly one of the things on the table and certainly something that we are exploring.”
