O’Donoghue returns to full Munster training after nine month lay off

Munster have been boosted by the news that Jack O’Donoghue has resumed full training and is expected to return to playing in the coming weeks.

O’Donoghue has not played since Munster’s defeat to Leinster in last season’s Pro14 semi final back in May.

The 25 year old back row forward underwent knee surgery soon after picking up the injury. JJ Hanrahan has also returned to training following a hip problem.

The news is not so good for Tommy O’Donnell after Munster confirmed that the Tipperary man had an operation on his AC joint last week. He will now undergo rehabilitation with the Munster medical department.

Sammy Arnold will be also be unavailable for selection over the next few weeks due to a hairline fracture of his fibula.

With the Six Nations having a down week, several of Munster’s Irish contingent are in line to play their Pro14 game with Southern Kings this Friday.

Andrew Conway has recovered from the same problem that he picked up on international duty, while CJ Stander remains an absentee due to a facial injury. The game with Southern Kings has a 7:35pm kick off at Musgrave Park this coming Friday.

The following are progressing with rehabilitation: Brian Scott (foot), James Cronin (leg), Tadhg Beirne (knee), Dave O’Callaghan (foot), Tommy O’Donnell (shoulder), CJ Stander (face), Sammy Arnold (leg).
