Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald, Head Coach Rob Penney and UL's Director of Sport and Recreation David Mahedy held a press conference in UL to talk about the up and coming one training centre for Munster Rugby.
Optimism that Mafi will escape sanction was low in Munster circles and Earls' return to contention is therefore exremely opprtune. He took a full part in the session in UL and showed no ill effects afterwards.
The side to face London Irish will be announced on Friday.
