Ireland's John Lacey will referee his first ever RBS 6 Nations while Alain Rolland is also included in the Elite Panel in what is his last season.
This afternoon an X-ray showed the damage that the young back rower sustained which will keep him sidelined for approximately two weeks.
Meanwhile, Keith Earls is expected to return to full training this week and could be included in the Munster squad for their final match before Christmas.
Peter Borlase (back), David O'Callaghan (knee) and Sean Scanlon (neck) all returned from injury in the Munster 'A' team's British & Irish Cup win over Ayr last Saturday. Ivan Dineen (knee) also returns to training this week.
