Squad Update | Coombes returns, O’Mahony a doubt as Zebo and De Allende ruled out of Leinster clash

The Munster squad are continuing preparations at the HPC for their interpro clash this weekend.

Munster round out their United Rugby Championship regular season against Leinster in Dublin this Saturday at 7.15pm.

In positive news for the province, Gavin Coombes (ankle), Chris Cloete (head) and Jack O’Sullivan (knee) will all return to training this week.

However, Simon Zebo (chest/rib) and Damian De Allende (chest) will both miss out with their injuries meaning they are unavailable for selection.

Peter O’Mahony was removed from the game against Toulouse with a persistent stinger and will be managed through the week.

Mike Haley was also removed from the game against Toulouse earlier this month after failing a HIA and is progressing through the return to play protocols. His availability will be determined later in the week.

James French is reintegrating to rugby training this week as he finalises his return from a knee injury.

Neil Cronin sustained an ankle injury in training last week and will go for a scan today.

Continuing to rehab: John Hodnett (knee), Dave Kilcoyne (neck), Tadhg Beirne (thigh), RG Snyman (knee).
