Munster are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated Cardiff Blues utility forward Robin Copeland.
Tommy O'Donnell will also be re-integrated to squad training towards the end of this week though is thought unlikely to be in contention for a place in either squad.
Ronan O'Gara is also reported to be showing no ill-effects from the back problem that made him doubtful for the Saracens game.
The issue arose after training last week and as a result JJ Hanrahan was sent back from England as cover. However, O'Gara pushed the issue to the back of his head to deliver a tour de force in Munster's 15-9 victory.
"Obviously, it wasn't something we wanted to advertise," a Munster spokesperson said, "but on Friday night you really couldn't see him playing. And then it was a case of let's see if he gets through the warm-up. For him then to go out and do what he did says it all about the character of the man."
