Stars return as Munster confirm 30-man squad for URC Final
Malakai Fekitoa, Conor Murray, Calvin Nash and RG Snyman are all available ahead of Munster’s URC Final clash with the Stormers this weekend in Cape Town.
All four completed the return to play protocols and are available for selection after missing the semi-final win over Leinster.
Although they’ll go in as underdogs against the defending champions playing on their home patch, Munster will be buoyed by their shock win over arch rivals Leinster and the fact that they’ve built a formiddable away record in recent weeks.
The 30-man squad consists of 17 forwards and 13 backs with Graham Rowntree’s 23-man matchday squad to be named before 12pm on Friday.
There’s good news elsewhere, with Jean Kleyn and Ben Healy also due to complete the return to play protocols this week after being removed during the semi-final win over Leinster.
Greencore Munster Rugby Academy scrum-half Ethan Coughlan is included in the travelling squad.

Gavin Hastings, was playing was he? 🤔Go to comments
Let Moana go and setup Timi Samoa and a Timi Tonga. I guarantee you that the support will be even stronger than that for the Fiji Drua. You only have to remember the support from The respective communities for Mate ma Tonga and Toa Samoa in Rugby League and also the national teams in Rugby Union. Both teams would be able to field teams equal to The Fiji drua or even better.Go to comments
