Meanwhile, with 10 players returning from international duty, Munster have delayed their squad announcement for the Cardiff Blues game until Thursday.

On Tuesday, the wintry weather forced Munster to move their morning and afternoon squad sessions from UL, where the pitches were frozen, to Garryowen’s facility at Dooradoyle.

The Munster players who were involved in Ireland’s 29-9 win over Argentina all reported fit and well for training.

Also taking part in training was Munster captain Paul O’Connell, who completed his first 40 minutes of the season last Friday for his club Young Munster. Speculation is mounting that he could make the squad for the Cardiff game.
