The news for his Munster team-mate Denis Hurley is not so good. The winger/full-back will be out of action for between four and six weeks after suffering medial ligament damage to his right knee in the recent win over Aironi.
Meanwhile, the province have also issued updates regarding other players on their injury list. Jerry Flannery, Barry Murphy and Ian Dowling are continuing to rehab their injuries without any news of a possible return to action.
But Felix Jones and Peter O'Mahony are both expected to feature in the Munster 'A' team's match against Ulster Ravens in Belfast next Wednesday.
