James French sustained a concussion in action for the Munster Development XV against Leinster on Friday and will enter the return to play protocols under the supervision of the medical department. Read a report from that game here.

Liam O’Connor (neck) is unavailable this week but is in line to make a return to training shortly.

Roman Salanoa (knee) is continuing to rehab and will be unavailable for the coming weeks.
