Jones Expected To Resume Tomorrow
15th March 2011 By Munster Rugby
It is anticipated that Felix Jones will return to action for the first time since mid September when Munster take on Ulster in the A Interprovincial at Shaw’s Bridge tomorrow afternoon.
Back in September, Jones suffered a knee injury in the game against Ospreys at Thomond Park having just returned from a neck injury that saw him miss most of the previous season and his return comes at a particularly opportune time as Munster push for honours on two fronts.
Also back from injury are wing forward Niall Ronan and number 8 Peter O'Mahony, both of whom trained yesterday with the squad in Limerick and likely to be making the trip north tomorrow.
Meanwhile Tom Gleeson will undergo a hernia operation on Thursday while Ian Dowling will see a specialist this week to get further clarification as he recovers from the hip injury sustained in the same game (Ospreys) that sidelined Jones.
