Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
This will be the second year in succession that Munster and London Irish play each other in a pre-season game.
It is also the second successive year they will compete for the Jack Wakefield Memorial Trophy to honour the memory of the three-year-old London Irish supporter Jack Wakefield whose inspirational battle against a brain tumour touched the hearts of people across the world.
He died on June 21, 2005.
In donating the memorial trophy, the supporters requested that it be contested every time that London Irish played an Irish province in a friendly match.
