The Munster squad are continuing preparations at the HPC ahead of Saturday’s Investec Champions Cup clash against RC Toulon at Stade Felix Mayol (3.15pm Irish time).

On the injury front, the availability of Oli Jager, Fineen Wycherley, Alex Nankivell, Niall Scannell, Peter O’Mahony, Joey Carbery and Patrick Campbell will be determined later in the week.

There is a positive update for Eoghan Clarke as he has completed the return to play protocols and is available for the weekend.

Oli Jager is continuing the return to play protocols.

Fineen Wycherley and Peter O’Mahony (both shoulder) are increasing their training exposure this week.

Alex Nankivell (ankle), Niall Scannell (groin), Joey Carbery (wrist) and Patrick Campbell (shoulder) all return to training this week.

Jack O’Donoghue’s need for surgery on a knee injury will be determined following a surgical consultation this week.

With his eye issue slow to recover and set to keep him out of action for the coming months, Jean Kleyn has undergone surgery on an ongoing knee issue and will not return to play this season.

There is good news for Mike Haley (hip) and Cian Hurley (ankle/achilles) as they will return to training in the coming weeks.

RG Snyman (chest/shoulder) is continuing to rehab and is due a return to action in March.

There were four Munster players in action for Young Munster on Saturday as they were narrowly beaten by Terenure College in the Bateman Cup final.

Ruadhán Quinn was among the tries with Keynan Knox and Shay McCarthy also starting as Chris Moore featured off the bench.

Continuing to rehab: Jack O’Donoghue (knee), Dave Kilcoyne (shoulder), Diarmuid Barron (foot), Edwin Edogbo (achilles), Jean Kleyn (eye/knee), Jack Daly (ankle), Liam Coombes (shoulder), RG Snyman (chest/shoulder), Roman Salanoa (knee), Mike Haley (hip), Cian Hurley (ankle/achilles).
