There are six uncapped players in the Ireland squad for the summer tour to North America that was named this morning. An Emerging Ireland squad has also been selected for the Tblisi Cup in Georgia.
O'Gara, who has been nursing a knee injury since the World Cup's pool stages, is in line to make his seasonal debut for the province, while young full-back Hurley, in recent weeks, has shown encouraging signs of his recovery from an ankle injury.
He sustained the injury in August's friendly match against the US Eagles in Chicago and has been out of the reckoning for Munster even since, although the 23-year-old did prove his fitness by playing a full part in Cork Constitution's AIB League Division One win over Blackrock College last Saturday.
MUNSTER Squad (v Edinburgh): Forwards (15) - John Hayes, Federico Pucciariello, Marcus Horan, Tony Buckley, Frankie Sheahan, Jerry Flannery, Mick O'Driscoll, Donncha O'Callaghan, Paul O'Connell (capt), Mark Melbourne, Denis Leamy, James Coughlan, Anthony Foley, David Wallace, Alan Quinlan.
Backs (12) - Peter Stringer, Tomas O'Leary, Paul Warwick, Ronan O'Gara, Lifeimi Mafi, Rua Tipoki, Kieran Lewis, Barry Murphy, Brian Carney, Keith Earls, Ian Dowling, Denis Hurley.
