Mixed Injury News For Munster Hookers

Following scans this week, there was mixed news on the injury front for Munster hookers Mike Sherry and Duncan Casey who both sustained knocks during the European Champions Cup round 1 win over Benetton Treviso.

Having jarred his knee during the first half of Munster’s Champions Cup opener against the Italians, Mike Sherry met with a specialist on Tuesday where the prognosis was largely positive.

After sustaining a mild ligament injury, the 27-year-old Ireland international will now undergo a short-term rehab programme for the next few weeks.
