Munster Receive Double Fitness Boost Ahead Of Ulster Clash


Munster have been boosted by the return of Ireland international duo Keith Earls and Niall Scannell to full training this week ahead of Saturday’s inter-provincial clash with Ulster.

Earls was set to make his first appearance of the season last weekend against Cardiff, but pulled up in training with a ‘knock’ and wasn’t risked for the round four clash.

Hooker Scannell is also set to make his first appearance of the season after recovering from a shoulder injury. Lock Billy Holland and hooker Kevin O’Byrne have also both returned to training this week.

On the bad news front – Rhys Marshall suffered a calf injury in training last week and will continue treatment with the medical department after undergoing a scan.

Stephen Fitzgerald continues to follow the return to play protocols.

Continuing rehabilitation: John Ryan (Ankle), Liam O’Connor (Knee), Conor Oliver (Toe), Jack O’Donoghue (Knee), Conor Murray (Neck), Chris Farrell (Knee), Neil Cronin (Shoulder), James Hart (Knee), Ronan O’Mahony (Ankle).
