Squad Update | Fresh injury blow for Simon Zebo while Conor Murray and Mike Haley return to the fold this week

Munster completed back-to-back victories in the URC for the first time this season when they beat Edinburgh last Friday.

The Munster squad started their training week on Tuesday ahead of Sunday’s Champions Cup opener against Toulouse at Thomond Park.

On the injury front, Conor Murray returns to training this week after recovering from the groin injury he sustained on his 100th Ireland cap against South Africa last month.

Mike Haley is expected to complete his return to play protocols this week with a view to returning to full team training.

Simon Zebo sustained a low-grade knee injury against Edinburgh and will begin rehabilitation with the medical department. He will be unavailable for the coming weeks.
