Kevin O'Byrne in action for Munster against the Dragons
Munster Rugby have headed off to South Africa today for a two week, two game tour. The men in red have taken a 28 man squad to take on the Southern Kings and the Cheetahs in round two and three of the Guinness Pro14.

Included in the squad is newcomer Jed Holloway who was issued with his work permit during the week, and Academy players Diarmuid Barron and Keynan Knox.
