Munster have announced that Ronan O'Gara has retired from playing professional rugby. It's understood that the 36 year old will take up a coaching role abroad at the start of the 2013/14 season.
Reports from the Irish camp suggest that the damage Conor Murray suffered to his knee may not be as bad as first thought. He looked to be in a lot of pain when he went down in the 59th minute and suggestions that he may yet feature against Scotland seem fanciful.
Meanwhile, Leinster Rugby have confirmed that the British & Irish Cup semi-final against Munster has been moved to the RDS and will be played on Good Friday, 6th April (KO: 6pm).
