A number of players continue to make good strides in their respective rehab programmes with the squad now into Week 2 of Preseason 2017 at Munster’s High Performance Centre in UL.

It’s hoped that Jean Kleyn (neck) will make a return to on-field action in the coming weeks with Robin Copeland (shoulder) on track for a return to action by the beginning of the season.

In overcoming a back injury that has kept him sidelined since May 2016, Mike Sherry has now commenced a gradual reintroduction to on-field training.

Ronan O’Mahony (fibula), Dave O’Callaghan (knee) and Darren O’Shea (shoulder) continue to progress well with their post-op recovery programmes.

As a number of senior and U20 international representatives are still to return to the senior and academy squads, a number of club players continue to bolster the training numbers this week with Cork Constitution’s John Poland becoming the latest club talent to link up with the squad this week.

Meanwhile, with injury curtailing his involvement during a one-year development contract last season, second row academy graduate Sean McCarthy continues to train with the squad during preseason.

Munster travel to face Donncha O’Callaghan’s Worcester Warriors in preseason action on Thursday August 24th at 7.30pm.
