Munster issue squad update ahead of sold-out Leinster PRO14 clash

Munster centre, in action here against Racing 92, will reintegrate into team training this week after recovering from a thigh injury

THE Munster squad returned to training at the High Performance Centre at University of Limerick today, December 27, ahead of Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 Interpro derby against Leinster at a sold-out Thomond Park, 5.15pm.

Munster report no new injuries reported following the Guinness PRO14 Round 11 defeat to Ulster at Kingspan last weekend.

Scrum-half James Hart (knee), hooker Rhys Marshall (hamstring) and centre Chris Farrell (thigh) will reintegrate to team training this week.

The following are progressing with rehabilitation: James Cronin (leg), Jack O’Donoghue (knee), Dave O’Callaghan (foot).

On a contract front, Stephen Fitzgerald linked up with Connacht this week after signing a three-month loan deal with the western province.

Prop Brian Scott underwent surgery last week for a foot injury sustained while playing for his club side Cork Constitution. He will now begin his rehabilitation with the medical department, with an expected return-to-play time frame of 4-6 months.
