Munster Reveal Full Extent Of Chris Cloete Arm Injury

Man down.

Munster have revealed that openside Chris Cloete suffered a forearm fracture against Glasgow on Friday night and underwent a successful surgery on Saturday morning. The flanker is expected to be out for three to four months.

There is good news elsewhere though, as Tommy O’Donnell  has returned to full training following an AC joint injury and is available for selection on Friday night.

Meanwhile Niall Scannell is being assessed by the medical team after sustaining a knock to the ribs against Glasgow on Friday night. Andrew Conway played no part in Friday night’s win over Glasgow Warriors and is continuing to receive treatment for a knee injury.

John Ryan and Rory Scannell have rejoined the Munster squad from international duty while Sammy Arnold has joined the Ireland camp for the next two days although he will return to Limerick ahead of Friday night’s game.

Ronan O’Mahony is set to miss the clash with Edinburgh due to a shoulder knock sustained away to Cardiff Blues earlier this month.
