Meanwhile the good news from Duncan Williams point of view is that it appears he suffered just an ankle sprain last Sunday against Scarlets. It looked ominous when he limped off in the opening half but although he will have further medical examination, it's believed there is no serious damage.
Should he miss Friday's game in Wales, Munster may be able to call on Tomas O'Leary who is on the way back from a thumb injury and likely to be named in the match day squad squad along with Conor Murray who made such a good impression once introduced for Williams on Sunday.
And the news that Paul O'Connell is reported to be in line for a run out with Young Munster on Friday night in their clash with Shannon will surely add a few to the attendance. O'Connell will train with Munster tomorrow and if he comes through that unscathed a decision will then be made on his participation in the AIL game on Friday.
