Munster Squad Update

Guinness PRO12 Editor

30 Aug 2011


John Hayes and Tomas O’Leary were both in UL this morning for Munster’s squad training ahead of the RaboDirect PRO12 opener against The Dragons in Musgrave Park (Sat 7.45pm).

And it's likely that they'll both be included in the Munster squad when it's named tomorrow evening. So too may be Johne Murphy who is reported to be recovering well from the hamstring injury he picked up playing for Ireland Select against Connacht.

Declan Cusack (dead leg) who limped off in the A game against Connacht last Friday and Ian Nagle who was replaced with a shoulder injury in the senior game are both reported fit and well while James Coughlan (eye) expects to receive the all clear when he sees a specialist tomorrow.

BJ Botha is looking at a RaboDirect PRO12 round two return, Darragh Hurley (achillies) is optimistic of a similar timeframe and Ivan Dineen has recovered from the bout of sickness that forced him to miss the action last weekend.

Troy Smith (knee) however is awaiting a date to have surgery that will rule him out until the New Year.

Tickets are on sale for Munster's opening RaboDirect PRO12 game via, , from the Munster Rugby ticket offices in Cork & Limerick, and the Munster Rugby Stores.
