New injury concerns but some noticeable returns for Munster

Craig Casey who made his first Champions Cup start on Sunday.

The Munster squad are training at the High Performance Centre this week ahead of the United Rugby Championship playoff quarter-final against Ulster in Belfast on Friday week.

Four players picked up injuries against Leinster in the final game of the URC regular season.

There was bad news for the young back-rower Jack Daly as he suffered an ACL injury and will be seen by a specialist.

Jean Kleyn sustained a neck injury and has undergone a scan and will be managed by the medical department. It is not expected to be a long-term injury.

Andrew Conway had an aggravation of his previous knee injury and will be assessed this week to determine his availability. Another huge loss is Alex Kendellen who was removed following his HIA and will undergo the return to play protocols under the supervision of the medical department.

There was better news for Craig Casey and Stephen Archer who will return to training this week following their respective illnesses. Club captain Peter O’Mahony is back to training after a minor injury that proved to be rather uncomfortable for the flanker.

Both Damian de Allende (chest) and Simon Zebo (chest/rib) will also return to full training this week.
