Tyler Bleyendaal an injury doubt following Connacht win

With Conor Murray retuning, injury concerns now surround Tyler Bleyendaal.

Munster flyhallf, has emerged as a serious doubt for their PRO12 semi-final clash with Ospreys on Saturday week.
The early stages of the Kiwi playmaker’s Munster career had been plagued by injury but he has been one of Munster’s standout players this season, recently winning their Player of the Year award.
Munster Director of Rugby, Rassie Erasmus last night collected the Coach of the Year award at the Guinness Pro12 awards night in Dublin but Bleyendaal was absent despite being named in the PRO12 Dream Team and being nominated for the Player’s Player of the Year award.
Erasmus explained that Bleyendaal went for scans on an injury that he picked up in the Connacht game.

“He’s gone for scans and stuff today [Sunday], that’s why he can’t be here, it’s serious enough that he’s had to go for scans,” Erasmus told RTE Sport

Asked if Bleyendaal was a doubt for the semi-final,” Erasmus replied:

“Yes, yes, yes, yes.”

Bleyendaal’s absence would be a huge blow to Munster’s title ambitions as the Kiwi has proved a lynchpin of the Munster game plan.

Let’s hope he can heal quickly and that Munster can get their best players on the pitch for he remainder of the season.
