With four weeks of Preseason 2017 almost complete, tomorrow will see the squad break for some well-earned rest and recovery time before recommencing their preseason programme at the latter end of next week.

On the injury front, Conor Oliver sustained a bang to the shoulder in training this week, irritating a nerve to his right hand and will meet with a specialist this week.

Meanwhile, in addition to the most recent squad update, the medical team were happy to report that both Tommy O’Donnell and JJ Hanrahan are making good progress with their respective injuries – O’Donnell rehabbing the ankle injury that saw him miss Ireland’s Summer Tour to the USA and Japan, and Hanrahan recovering post-op for a shoulder injury sustained at Northampton.

Just five weeks remain before Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus names his first side of the season.  Munster travel to Sixways Stadium to face Worcester Warriors in preseason action on Thursday August 24th at 7.30pm.

The squad may come face-to-face with two familiar faces, Worcester today announcing that Peter Stringer will join the club on a six-month-deal, joining fellow Munsterman Donncha O’Callaghan at the Premiership outfit.
