Crotty and Wallace both fit for Munster
April 20, 2001
Full-back Dominic Crotty and flanker David Wallace have both been declared fit for Munster's semi-final against French champions Stade Francais in Lille tomorrow.
But the absence of injured back-row man Alan Quinlan means lock Donncha O'Callaghan plays at blindside flanker and former Ireland captain Dion O'Cuinneagain, registered as an additional player for the knockout stages, is among the replacements.
Meanwhile former Ireland full back Simon Mason, who kicked Ulster to European Cup success has failed to make the Stade Français squad for the game.
Stade Francais: C Dominici; T Lombard, C Mytton, F Comba, R Poulain; D Dominguez, C Laussucq; S Marconnet, F Landreau, P De Villiers, D Auradou, M James, C Moni, R Pool-Jones, C Juillet (capt).
