Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus confirmed at the province’s media briefing at UL this Tuesday that 25-year-old Saili had suffered a setback with a shoulder injury.

Erasmus said: “We got a setback with his shoulder. He went in for a scope yesterday but there is some more repair work (needed). It’s going to be an extended lay-off. It wasn’t great news but it is what it is.”

Saili is now set to miss the opening months of Munster’s Pro12 season as well as the opening two rounds of the European Champions Cup.
