In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
Sean Dougall (knee) came through last Friday's B&I Cup game unscathed after replacing Barry O'Mahony in the 51st minute and could be in contention for a place in the squad as might Donncha O'Callaghan who continues to rehab his knee (medial ligament) sprain picked up against Leinster in the RaboDirect in Thomond Park Stadium.
Further news on Keith Earls is expected tomorrow and given Paul O'Connell is certain to be named in the Lions squad tomorrow the Zebre game may be on his agenda in order to get valuable game time under his belt.
Luke O'Dea is undergoing surgery today on his wrist to repair ligament damage sustained against Leinster A in the Interpro in March.
