Squad Update | Pre-Leinster
27th December 2018 By The Editor
The Munster squad returned to training at the High Performance Centre in Limerick today ahead of Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 Interpro derby against Leinster at a sold-out Thomond Park.
There were no new injuries reported following the Guinness PRO14 Round 11 game against Ulster at Kingspan.
Prop Brian Scott underwent surgery last week for a foot injury sustained while playing for his club side Cork Constitution. He will now begin his rehabilitation with the medical department, with an expected return-to-play time frame of 4-6 months.
James Hart (knee), Rhys Marshall (hamstring) and Chris Farrell (thigh) will reintegrate to team training this week.
The following are progressing with rehabilitation: James Cronin (leg), Jack O’Donoghue (knee), Dave O’Callaghan (foot).
On a contract front, Stephen Fitzgerald linked up with Connacht this week after signing a three-month loan deal with the western province.
Nominated Charity Game
In supporting this season’s nominated charities, Cliona’s Foundation and Irish Cancer Society, €1 from each match programme sold at Munster’s sold-out Guinness PRO14 clash against Leinster will be donated to the worthy causes.
In keeping with previous years, the Round 12 Guinness PRO14 Interprovincial fixture has been nominated as Munster’s official “Charity Match”.
During half-time, representatives from both charities will each be presented with a signed Munster jersey on pitch.
Match programmes will be on sale at the game for €5, with €1 from each match programme sold donated to the respective charities.
