Following a rest day, the Munster squad will regroup tomorrow in preparation for next Saturday's RaboDirect PRO12 fixture away to Edinburgh.
Conor Murray and James Downey were the only Munster players to require treatment in the aftermath of a physical and bruising Heineken Cup semi-final against Toulon yesterday.
Downey and Murray both received stitches to the face, the scrum half's injury being the consequence the connection Juan Fernandez Lobbe made during a first half incident which saw the Toulon flanker sin-binned.
All players will undergo full reviews from the Munster medical staff once they return to their training centres tomorrow morning in a week which sees a quick turnaround between matches.
Having arrived back from Marseille late last night the Munster squad will fly to Edinburgh on Friday in time for Saturday evening's PRO12 encounter in Meggetland.
Captain against Toulon, Damien Varley yesterday answered questions about the province's decision to kick for the corner rather than go for the posts to make it a two-point game with eight minutes to go.
"It was a collective decision. We felt that we were really on top, our set piece didn't get going as much as we wanted in the first half and we felt that we'd get a maul together and walk them over," said the hooker.
"Any time we got a maul before, they were giving away penalties and we felt we could walk them over. We back the decision 100% but again it was a case of unforced errors."
Varley was impressed with the physicality Munster brought to the game, adding: "I think we probably expected a little more physicality from them. We stopped a lot of their poaching abilities, we stopped (Steffon) Armitage and (Mathieu) Bastareaud). 90% of the time we were very clinical at the breakdown.
"I certainly felt we were physically on top but it wasn't our physicality that lost it, it was our handling and our unforced errors and certainly our discipline in the first half."
Yesterday's 24-16 loss was head coach Rob Penney's final Heineken Cup match in charge of Munster and he believes this squad will return to the knockout stages again.
"The two experiences I've had at semi-final time, I've left (feeling) hollow," explained the New Zealander.
"Both occasions I believe we could have won and I suppose it's just as the squad matures a bit...I don't think there was a belief issue today. Last year (against Clermont Auvergne) it was a little bit of a belief issue, but this year I don't believe so.
"I thought we didn't get a couple of early decisions, momentum swung and we're chasing our tail a little bit all the way through. And on top of that were the unforced errors we were making. It just wasn't to be.
"The learnings from that are we've just got to be more patient and build pressure, because we've shown time and time again that this team's very capable and it will grow and it will learn and it will be here again."
Following the completion of discussions between EPCR, the Ligue Nationale de Rugby, Premiership Rugby and PRO12 Rugby to reschedule the six European club matches which were postponed due to the Paris attacks, it has been agreed by all parties that the games will be played on the weekend of January 8/9/10, 2016 in advance of round 5 of the European Champions Cup and Challenge Cup.
Connacht Rugby and the IRFU are pleased to announce the extended contract of Ireland international Kieran Marmion. The 23-year-old, who was first capped for Ireland in the summer of 2014, has put pen to paper on a new two-year contract with Connacht Rugby.
Looking forward to the new GUINNESS PRO12 season, Connacht captain John Muldoon said: "We've a lot of younger guys who have big years ahead of them and a few big name signings who will hopefully be able to fit into the system and work hard among the ethos of Connacht Rugby."

Young scrum half Kieran Marmion was one of Connacht's star performers in their famous 16-14 Heineken Cup victory away to Toulouse, scoring a crucial second half try and picking up the man-of-the-match award.
Giving his reaction after Connacht's historic 16-14 win away to Toulouse, head coach Pat Lam said: "The belief's been there, we knew that this performance was not far away. To come here in a massive game with the side they put out is an unbelievable effort (from us) and I'm so proud of the guys."
Fergus McFadden, who helped to launch the Ulster Bank League awards in Dublin, spoke afterwards about his recovery from a fractured hand, previewed Leinster's back-to-back games against Northampton Saints and reflected on his involvement in the GUINNESS Series with Ireland.
Out-half Craig Ronaldson, who has made a successful transition from Ulster Bank League rugby with Lansdowne to a professional contract with Connacht, talks about the step up to this level of rugby, the importance of the league in providing game-time and a shop window for players and he also previews the province's back-to-back clashes with Toulouse.
Connacht head coach Pat Lam was proud of the performance his players produced in their 23-17 Heineken Cup defeat to Saracens, but he was left frustrated by some of referee Pascal Gauzere's decisions in a tight second half.
