Munster are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated Cardiff Blues utility forward Robin Copeland.
Better news though for Luke O'Dea who suffered an ankle sprain in that game is that he'll be back in action in a couple of weeks while Sean Scanlon (lower back) having seen a specialist to determine the exact extent of his injury is being monitored by Munster's medical team.
There's also a planned visit to a specialist for Troy Smith who injured a knee in training earlier in the week but Johne Murphy (knee) is due back jogging next week and Paul O'Connell edges closer to a return having shown no ill effects of his rehab track training this week.
Ian Nagle (shoulder) is another who could be back in action early next month.
