It has been a fantastic opening few month of the season for the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy with players in Guinness PRO14, Celtic Cup and All Ireland League action.

Four Academy players featured in the win away to Cheetahs last weekend with Shane Daly and try-scorer Liam Coombes both starting as Coombes made his PRO14 debut.

Sean O’Connor and Gavin Coombes featured off the bench in the Bloemfontein victory as Munster moved up to second place in Conference A of the PRO14.

16 Academy players played their part in Munster A’s Celtic Cup campaign with Peter Malone’s side winning five from six games as Leinster took the title.

It was announced last month that Academy duo Gavin Coombes and Shane Daly will join the senior ranks next season with the pair both signing two-year contracts.
