Munster continue preparations for this weekend’s Guinness PRO12 opener away to Scarlets with Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus meeting with media following this morning’s pitch session.
Following his senior debut on Friday, winger Alex Wootton reported a hyper extension of the knee, however Erasmus was not overly concerned with the extent of the injury. Otherwise the matchday squad came through the win over Worcester with a clean bill of health, including Tyler Bleyendaal who showed no ill-effects from his 52 minutes of rugby.
Stephen Archer was another who did not train today. The tighthead is undergoing a scan for a neck complaint today with medical staff awaiting the results before a full prognosis can be made.
David Johnston who is currently returning from an ankle issue is expected to take part in full training next week while Erasmus had no further update on Johnny Holland with the province still awaiting a medical report on his hamstring injury.
Peter O’Mahony (knee), Sammy Arnold (knee), Mark Chisholm (concussion), Sean McCarthy (knee), Francis Saili (shoulder) and Mike Sherry (back) all continue to follow their respective rehab programmes.
Munster face Scarlets in Llanelli at 3pm on Saturday with Erasmus to name his matchday squad at midday on Friday. Click here for a full match preview.
