Alex Wootton has returned to full training after recovering from his knee injury sustained last season.

Continuing to rehab: Ciaran Parker (calf).

Head Coach Johann van Graan confirmed Munster’s 12 World Cup representatives will return to the province in early November, while incoming Forwards Coach Graham Rowntree will join the squad next week.
