Munster Rugby Star Set To Make Long Awaited Return To Rugby

Mark Chisholm is set to return to action tonight night after a year out of the game.

The veteran Wallaby lock has been named on the bench for the Munster A side’s meeting with Ealing Trailfinders at Cork Institute of Technology in the semi-finals of the British & Irish Cup.

Chisholm, who’s been capped 58 times by the Wallabies, hasn’t played a game since Munster’s win against Newport Gwent Dragons in the Guinness Pro12 in March 2016.

The lock forward only returned to training last month after being forced to take an extended break from the game due to concussion.
