Former Cork Hurling Star Gets His First Competitive Start For Munster

Darren Sweetnam was a promising hurler for Cork before he shocked the Rebel county by taking up a professional contract with Munster. The former hurler shone for the Rebels on their march to the All-Ireland semi-final in 2012, but converted to the oval game in October of that year.

The back three flier began in the Munster academy and shone for the Ireland U-20's. He was rewarded with his first professional contract last January despite not making a single senior competitive appearance.

That will change on Saturday away to Zebre as Sweetnam features in a much changed Munster team shorn of their international players. Andrew Conway makes his return from injury, which is also notable for the inclusion of Irish call-up James Cronin who is the only Munster player released from camp. Billy Holland celebrates a new two-year deal by captaining the province, and they will be desperate to continue their revival at the hapless Italians.
