The squad gathered in UL today as preparations commenced for round 22 of the Guinness PRO12 against Connacht in Thomond Park on Saturday May 6th, 5.15pm.

Saturday’s bonus point victory against Treviso came at a price when Ronan O’Mahony and Dave O’Callaghan were forced to retire with injuries in the opening twenty minutes.

The medical team have confirmed that winger Ronan O’Mahony fractured his fibula, while back row Dave O’Callaghan is awaiting scan results for a knee injury.

Billy Holland who was a late withdrawal from Saturday’s game due to illness will not take part in training today. John Ryan will also sit out the session due to illness.

Following further medical review it has been confirmed that Robin Copeland dislocated his shoulder when playing for Munster A in the British & Irish Cup Final and will undergo surgery this week.

Jean Deysel, who sustained a rib injury during the Champions Cup semi-final, continues to be monitored and it is hoped the South African will take part in training as the week continues.

Rory Scannell who sustained a concussion during the same encounter continues to follow return to play protocols.

On a positive front Conor Murray is progressing with his shoulder rehabilitation as he continues to be assessed by the medical team.

Continuing to rehab – Jean Kleyn (neck), Dave Foley (wrist), Sean McCarthy (knee), Mike Sherry (back).

Munster v Connacht, Guinness PRO12 round 22, Saturday May 6th at Thomond Park, ko 5.15pm.
