The good news for Munster ahead of the weekend action is that three of their international contingent will be back in the match day squad.
Ronan O'Gara, Keith Earls
and Conor Murray
will all be named in the Munster squad when it's named later this week for the RaboDirect PRO12 clash with Ulster in Ravenhill on Friday (7.05).
Donncha O'Callaghan is also expected to be included having missed last weekend's win over Treviso while Niall Ronan will also travel north though it's thought he's more likely to feature in the A game at Deramore Park (Belfast Harlequins) that also takes place on Friday.
O'Callaghan swopped the Munster dressing room for the maternity ward of CUH on Friday evening where his wife gave birth to their second child while Ronan was scheduled to play for Shannon on Saturday but their game was called off.
