Squad Update | Munster assessing couple of head injuries as Coombes ruled out of URC opener

Munster got their pre-season underway last weekend against Gloucester.

Munster fell to defeat last Friday against Gloucester, with the score being 28-19 and have now set their attention to the game against London Irish.

From the match, 18-year-old Ruadhan Quinn and Jack O’Sullivan are following ‘return-to-play’ protocols after suffering head injuries, with O’Sullivan being withdrawn from the Friday’s match.

Gavin Coombes is carrying a groin injury and is currently being managed but will miss the first rounds of the URC.
