The Munster squad returned to the HPC today (Tuesday) ahead of Saturday’s round two Champions Cup clash against Castres Olympique at Thomond Park (8pm).

Tickets for the game are available here.

As confirmed in Sunday’s Squad Update, the majority of the 34-person travelling party that returned from South Africa on Wednesday, December 1, have completed their quarantine period.

The 14 players and staff that were quarantining in Cape Town have all safely returned home.

Despite recent Covid infection with recovery, they have been required to undertake an additional period of self-isolation as advised by public health.

Our priority is the health and wellbeing of our players and staff, and we are hugely grateful to those involved and their families for the manner in which they are handling this situation.

There is disappointing news on the injury front as Joey Carbery suffered an elbow fracture on Sunday and will require surgery on Thursday.

Chris Farrell (abdomen), John Hodnett (ankle), Roman Salanoa (knee) and Academy player Jonathan Wren (leg) all made successful returns from their respective injuries against Wasps.

Unavailable: Calvin Nash (ankle), Rowan Osborne (head), RG Snyman (knee).
