Munster endured a tough opening day at the Interprovincial Championships at Fota Island today. Despite having local knowledge they struggled in the foursomes with Peter O’Keeffe and Cathal Butler takings Munster’s only win. Munster’s Gary O’Flaherty and Andrew McCormack scrambled for a very good half in their match, having been down earlier in the game. The singles were very disappointing for Munster with Andrew McCormack winning Munster’s only point. The experienced side will need to bounce back strongly tomorrow to give themselves a chance of winning on Wednesday.
Munster face Leinster tomorrow in the second day of matches. Leinster had a narrow win over Connacht. Ulster lead the standings with Leinster in second place, Connacht are third with Munster in fourth place.
