Tadhg Beirne and RG Snyman return to training but Keith Earls a doubt for Glasgow

Keith Earls underwent an MRI and has started rehabilitation with the medical department for a groin injury sustained against Sharks.

The Munster squad are preparing for Saturday’s URC quarter-final away to Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun (7.35pm, live on RTÉ & Premier Sports).

On the injury front, there is a huge boost for the province as Tadhg Beirne returns to training after an ankle injury sustained in the second round of the Six Nations ruled him out for the remainder of the competition. The 31-year old underwent surgery on the injury win mid February and hasn’t featured for club or country since.
