Tony McGahan, Munster Head Coach spoke about the importance of the game as part of their pre-season training: “We are of course looking forward to this match. Last year’s trip proved very beneficial both in terms of the match itself and the subsequent season. While it’s a great honour to play against international oposition this game also represents the ideal type of preparation ahead of the new season.”

Munster have brought a near full strength squad with the exceptions of Denis Leamy, David Wallace, James Coughlan and Ciaran O’Boyle.

The Setanta Challenge Cup match will be broadcast live on ESPN Classic as well as on Setanta Sports. Tickets for this event are priced from $20 to $60 and will be available through www.ticketmaster.com/munster or by calling (860) 525-4500.
