Chris Cloete expected to return to training ahead of RDS semi-final

The Munster squad gathered in the High Performance Centre today to continue preparations for next Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 Semi-Final against Champions Cup winners Leinster.

Flanker Chris Cloete is progressing well with his rehabilitation from a fractured forearm sustained against Glasgow in February and is expected to return to training this week under the supervision of the medical staff.

Following the win against Edinburgh in Thomond Park the medical department confirmed that Stephen Archer sustained a pec muscle injury, with the tighthead prop requiring surgery last week, ruling him out of this weekend’s clash.

Andrew Conway, who sustained a concussion in the same encounter continues to follow return to play protocols.

Similarly, Duncan Williams who sustained a concussion against Ulster in round 21, continues to follow return to play protocols.

The front row trio of Brian Scott (ribs), Niall Scannell (AC joint) and John Ryan (back) will all take part in training this week under the watchful eye of the medical department with their progress reviewed each day. Scott sustained a rib injury during training over a week ago, while Scannell and Ryan sustained knocks in the Champions Cup semi-final against Racing 92.

Kevin O’Byrne (hip flexor) has returned to on-field training.

Continuing to rehab: Tommy O’Donnell (shoulder), Tyler Bleyendaal (neck), Chris Farrell (knee).
