Penney Delays Naming Squad
18th September 2012 By jess
With an A Interprovincial on Thursday and a number of injury concerns, Munster coach Rob Penney has delayed naming his squad for the visit of Newport Dragons to Thomond Park Stadium on Saturday.
Definitely out of consideration are James Coughlan (groin) and Luke O'Dea (ankle) while Denis Hurley (throat) and Ivan Dineen (stomach) are both on the sick list and missed today's training in Cork.
And despite media reports of the severity of Coughlan's injury, the Dolphin No. 8 is not expected to know his fate until he sees a specialist tomorrow.
Simon Zebo is expected to be named in the squad as is Niall Ronan who came through the A game on Friday, having played for 50 minutes, unscathed.
Prop John Ryan returned from his successful stint with London Irish and resumed training today with a view to being involved in the A game (Garryowen FC) on Thursday.
