    Munster Development XV v. Barcelona - Camp L'Estadi Esports UB, ko 4.30pm

    "Over the next few weeks we hope to get a few games for the lads.

    We’re going to do a tour to Barcelona on the 9th of February, bringing a Munster Development Squad, including club, sub academy and academy guys playing a one off game against a Barcelona club selection.

    Then like last year we’re playing a Russian select side again in April.

    These are great games from a development point of view and are hugely beneficial."
    It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

    Every plan I have is the best plan in the room. Everybody get quiet and listen to it, and everybody will win

    Tell the lads keep their wallets and passports in their shorts....
    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                Was on a stag there a few years back and a cousin of the stag, who lived there told ud to mind our wallets from the pickpockets. Of course he was the only one pickpocketed. They must have spotted our Limerick heads!

                  "Russian side" - this is last Russian Champion club Enisey-STM
                  (from STM site)

                  Alexander Pervukhin (President Enisey-STM) of the pre-season preparation for the Russian Cup and PR

                  Last year you played in Ireland v. Connacht A and Munster Development XV, 2 years ago you played in Italy against Lazio Roma and L'Aquila. Where Enisey-STM go this year?
                  Do you think you will play against french sides in a short-term?


                  AP: For the last ten years we have been trying to choose the best place for training camp basing primarily on the number and level of fixtures. We have been to South Africa, to Romania for several times, two times to Italy, couple of times to France –in Vichy, somewhere near Toulouse and somewhere near by Dack and Lion. Unfortunately, during all our visits to France we did not succeed to find worthy opponents in March-April due to their Championship. Even if we arrived in their breaks though the teams of Federal I, which we had agreed to play with, set out their second squads. Only once we were lucky enough to play with a team which entered Federal I having won Federal II. It was a good match which, by the way, we won.
                  So, for the last years we have worked out a certain way of training camps holding.
                  The first camps is usually in Turkey which the terms and conditions for a training camp are perfect, especially first trainings on the field after winter.
                  Besides we managed to attract there Romanian and for the second time Georgian teams to have mutual sparring. Therefore this year we scheduled early first camp in Turkey – from the 1st till 13th February.
                  The second camp will be there also from 4/5 till 18/19 March depending upon Romanian and possibly Russian teams. And the last camp is traditionally in Ireland where we have a chance to play three games with good opponents in April just before the start of our domestic season.
                  We are always ready to come in this timeline and to France as well in order we manage to have games with strong teams. We did not succeed so far…
