The Munster squad are preparing for the opening fixture of the season on Friday night as London Irish visit Irish Independent Park (7.30pm). On the injury front, James Cronin (leg) and Jeremy Loughman (hamstring) have both returned to full training ahead while Brian Scott (foot) returns to training this week and Alex Wootton (knee) is progressing well with his rehab.

It will be a busy weekend for the squad with Munster A in Celtic Cup action on Saturday against the Connacht Eagles at the Sportsground. Please note the kick-off time of that game has been moved to 1pm.
