NEARLY a third of the Munster travelling party were forced to remain in hotel quarantine in South Africa.

For 34 of the Munster travelling party, the South African nightmare has come to a close with players and staff returning to Ireland on Wednesday.

As outlined by the government earlier this week, they will now follow mandatory self-isolation and PCR testing at their own locations.

However, fourteen remain in South Africa under hotel quarantine after an outbreak of covid cases discovered during testing earlier this week.

Munster have signaled that those in quarantine are “doing well.”

In squad news, Munster’s senior and Academy players who didn’t travel to South Africa have been training since Monday along with a number of the province’s NTS (National Talent Squad) and PTS (Provincial Talent Squad) members at the High Performance Centre.

Greencore Munster Rugby Academy Manager Ian Costello and staff are overseeing the training schedule as preparations continue for Munster’s opening Champions Cup game against Wasps on Sunday, December 12.

EPCR are aware of the situation and in contact with the province.
