The Munster squad have commenced preparations at the High Performance Centre ahead of Saturday’s sold-out Guinness PRO14 clash with Leinster at Thomond Park (6pm).

Following Saturday’s win against Connacht at the Sportsground, Gavin Coombes will follow the graduated return to play protocols this week after departing for a HIA in the opening ten minutes.

With 12 players attending the Ireland gathering at the IRFU’s High Performance Centre over the last 24 hours, returning players available for this week’s provincial training will link up with the squad on Thursday in UL.

Joey Carbery, who has been rehabbing an ankle injury, is expected to take part in the scheduled session.

Under medical review: Tadhg Beirne (ankle), John Ryan (calf), Rhys Marshall (knee), Tyler Bleyendaal (neck), Ciaran Parker (calf), Darren Sweetnam (hamstring).
