Munster coach Declan Kidney today (Wed) named a 25 strong squad that he will bring to France for the Heineken Cup semi final game with Castres in Beziers on Saturday.
Announcing the squad this afternoon following their afternoon training session at Thomond Park, Kidney explained that the reason for the extended squad was to provide cover for some of his walking wounded. Chief concern now centres around lock Paul O’Connell who has a shoulder problem which means the inclusion in the squad of John Langford, only recently returned from his native Australia.
Backs D Crotty, J Staunton, A Horgan, J Kelly, J O’Neill, M Mullins, R Henderson, J Holland, R O’Gara, P Stringer, M Prendergast.
Forwards P Clohessy, J Hayes, M Horan, M Cahill, J Fogarty, F Sheahan, M Galwey, P O’Connell, M O’Driscoll, J Langford, D O’Callaghan, A Quinlan, D Wallace, A Foley.
