Munster confirm Andrew Conway and Rhys Marshall suffered concussions

MUNSTER have confirmed that both winger Andrew Conway and hooker Rhys Marshall sustained concussions in Saturday night’s Champions Cup Pool 4 victory over Leicester Tigers at Thomond Park.

Both Conway and Marshall will follow return to play protocols this week as the province’s focus switches to next Sunday’s return game between the sides at Welford Road, 5.30pm, live on BT Sport 2.

On a positive note, flanker Tommy O’Donnell played the full 80 minutes for Munster A in their British and Irish Cup defeat to Bedford Blues in Cork on Friday night after successfully rehabbing an AC joint injury sustained in early November.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that Munster academy prop Liam O’Connor requires further consultation with a specialist for the knee injury sustained in the PRO14 game against Ospreys in Cork.

Munster players continuing to Rehab: Tyler Bleyendaal (neck), Gerbrandt Grobler (ankle), Conor Oliver (shoulder), Dan Goggin (knee), Dave O’Callaghan (knee), Jaco Taute (knee), Niall Scannell (thumb), Keith Earls (hamstring), James Cronin (calf), Chris Farrell (knee).
