All Clear From The Weekend
22nd October 2012 By jess
Good news from the Munster camp this morning is that everyone came through Sunday’s encounter with Edinburgh with a clean bill of health.
Paul O'Connell and Donncha O'Callaghan both retired at a relatively early stage but there was nothing untoward in either case, O'Callaghan was just over a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Racing game while O'Connell had done enough in just his second game back.
Felix Jones also came through unscathed after making his first appearance at this level since May and though Casey Laulala received attention several times in the early part of the game for a groin problem but played the full 80 and he is reported to be fit and well.
Ronan O'Gara spent the game in front of a TV monitor in the Munster dug-out, miced-up to give his input and he is not expected to be involved against Zebre on Friday but along with Keith Earls could see a return to action in early November.
Wian du Preez is looking at a similar timeframe while it's likely to be towards the end of November before Niall Ronan gets back.
Other than those, Rob Penney will have a full deck to deal from when he sits down to select his side for the visit of Zebre to Thomond Park Stadium next Friday.
