Squad Update | Munster Begin Preparations For Leinster Clash
20th December 2022 By The Editor
The Munster squad started their preparations at the HPC today (Tuesday) ahead of the Interpro derby against Leinster on St Stephen’s Day at a sold-out Thomond Park (7.35pm).
The majority of club games were postponed at the weekend but there were three players in AIL action as Ethan Coughlan, Darragh McSweeney and Kieran Ryan helped Shannon defeat Lansdowne in Dublin.
On the injury front following Sunday’s bruising encounter in Northampton, John Hodnett is going for a scan on a low grade thigh injury and his availability for St Stephen’s Day will be determined later in the week.
There is good news for Stephen Archer (ankle), Jack O’Sullivan (knee) and Simon Zebo (knee) as they all return to full training this week.
As confirmed earlier this month, Greencore Munster Rugby Academy lock Edwin Edogbo has sustained an ankle injury that rules him out for the coming weeks.
Continuing to rehab: Tom Ahern (shoulder), RG Snyman (knee), Fineen Wycherley (shoulder), Paddy Kelly (head), Jack Daly (knee), Andrew Conway (knee), Keynan Knox (knee).
