A strong start to the season has seen Rory Scannell play in every Munster 'A' game to date, alternating between out-half and centre and kicking 33 points along the way. The Dolphin clubman knows first-hand the benefit of British & Irish Cup experience in helping players to make the transition to GUINNESS PRO12 rugby.
Western Province centre Patrick Howard is set to join Munster Rugby on a three-month contract. The 22-year-old South African will join the province later in the month subject to passing the normal medical procedures.
With a number of international players unavailable for selection, Anthony Foley has rung the changes for Saturday's GUINNESS PRO12 clash with Cardiff Blues. Donncha O'Callaghan, Munster's most-capped player, will captain the province in the Welsh capital.
