Calvin Nash to return to training as Munster give injury update

Munster take on Connacht at the Sportsground on Saturday at 3pm in the province’s final pre-season clash before kicking off the Guinness PRO14 campaign at home against Dragons at Thomond Park on Saturday week (3pm).

The squad returned to training on Monday after Friday night’s 45-5 win over London Irish at Irish Independent Park.

Munster scored seven tries on the night in a comprehensive win.

It will be a busy weekend for the squad with Munster A also in action as Cardiff Blues A visit Irish Independent Park for a Celtic Cup clash this Friday (6pm).

The Munster A squad will be named on Thursday with the senior squad announced on Friday.

On the injury front, Calvin Nash suffered a hip pointer injury on Friday night and is expected to return to training next week.

Ciaran Parker will miss the start of the Guinness PRO14 season due to a calf injury.

Short-term loan signing Jed Holloway is set to arrive in Munster this weekend.
