Munster moved to the top of Pool 6 in the Heineken Cup with a bonus-point 36-8 win over Perpignan at Thomond Park on Sunday afternoon.
News from Rob Penney today confirmed that Keith Earls (shoulder) continues to make good progress but is unlikely to be involved this weekend and the same applies to Doug Howlett who is suffering a shoulder injury sustained in the game against Glasgow.
Sean Dougall (knee) and Luke O'Dea (wrist) continue to be ruled out of consideration.
Munster take on Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade next Friday night at 7pm and the team will be announced on Thursday at midday.
