Munster Help Leinster Out By Giving One Of Their Players Some Game Time

Four proud provinces.

Munster decided to give Leinster a helping hand this afternoon by giving one of their young prospects a bit of game time as he makes his way back from injury.

The Munster development side took on the Irish U20’s at Thomond Park, coming away with a 15-10 victory in a close affair in Limerick. Highly-rated Leinster lock James Ryan was a late addition to Munster’s squad before the game, as the southern province gave their Irish rivals a helping hand.

Great to see as developing these young players is what Irish Rugby as a whole needs, with Ryan getting 68 minutes of much needed game time. Four proud provinces working together.
