Munster A v Connacht Eagles - 'A' InterprovincialMunster A Head Coach Peter Malone has named a strong squad for the vital British and Irish Cup clash against Plymouth Albion at Waterford’s Regional Sports Centre tomorrow night (ko 7:30pm).

The side, which includes bench warmers from last week’s Heineken Cup clash,  Billy Holland and CJ Stander  looks to bounce back from last weekend’s 17-7 defeat at the hands of the Devon side.
In all, there are seven changes to the side beaten last week with Munster academy players Darren Sweetnam, Niall Kenneally and debutant Alex Wootton coming into the backline.

Experienced Cork Con scrum-half Gerry Hurley also comes into the backs and the forwards have been bolstered by the inclusion of Barry O’Mahony and the aforementioned Billy Holland and CJ Stander.

There’s a positional change for last week’s try-scorer Ronan O’Mahony as he starts at full-back with Dolphin’s Sweetnam coming into the side on the right wing. Cork Con’s Kenneally is making his first start for the side and he partners Cian Bohane of Dolphin in the centres with Garryowen’s Wootton on the left wing.

Billy Holland comes into the second row alongside Ian Nagle and the back-row is made up by Dave O’Callaghan, Barry O’Mahony and Stander.
