Squad Update

Following Friday’s win over the Maori All Blacks and with a break in Guinness PRO12 action this coming weekend, they squad will take some down time this week before resuming Treviso preparations next Monday.

A number of injured players will continue with their respective rehabilitation programmes in UL this week.

James Cronin emerged as the only injury concern during Friday’s action at Thomond Park. The loosehead has undergone a scan for a pec injury sustained in the opening half and is currently awaiting the results.

Dave Foley (elbow) has now returned to full training with Jean Kleyn to return to full training once the squad reassemble next week.

Continuing to rehabDave O'Callaghan (shoulder), Kevin O'Byrne (elbow), Sean McCarthy (knee), Mark Chisholm (concussion), Francis Saili (shoulder), Duncan Casey (knee), Mike Sherry (back), Cathal Sheridan (ankle), Cian Bohane (foot).

No less than three Munster representatives – Billy Holland, Jack O’Donoghue and John Ryan – made their test debuts for Ireland in the November Series win over Canada at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday evening. Holland and O’Donoghue both started alongside captain Peter O’Mahony and try scorer Keith Earls with Ryan, Dave Kilcoyne and Donnacha Ryan all seeing game time off the bench.

Meanwhile, at the annual World Rugby Awards last night, Munster’s Conor Murray and Simon Zebo both had parts to play in Jamie Heaslip’s World Rugby Try of the Year. A free-flowing team move, it was Ireland's fourth try in a 58-15 victory over Italy during this year’s 6 Nations.
