The tournament takes place at Thomond Park across Friday, August 21 and Saturday, August 22. Hosts Munster have Wellington, Canadian Maples and San Francisco for company in Pool A, while Leinster will tackle defending champions Daveta Fiji, Stade Francais and New York in Pool B.

There will be plenty of Irish interest in the Pool C games with provincial rivals Connacht and Ulster facing each other as well as Buenos Aires, the 2014 Twickenham 7s champions, and Golden Lions.

Elite Player Development Officer Colm McMahon will again take charge of the Munster team for the event, with Munster ‘A’ team manager Alan Miller and senior squad S&C coach PJ Wilson also joining his backroom team.

It was announced earlier today that those attending the opening day on Friday, August 21 will also be treated to 15-a-side action when Connacht and Munster take to the field for an interprovincial pre-season clash.
