Munster stepped up preparations for this Saturday’s European Champions Cup encounter with Leicester Tigers at Thomond Park with their first squad session of the week.
Having recovered from illness, both Andrew Conway and Jack O’Donoghue returned to take a full part in training today at the University of Limerick, as did BJ Botha who has now completed his return-to-play protocols after sustaining a concussion against Connacht over a week ago.
Conor Murray (foot), Mike Sherry (knee) and Donnacha Ryan (ribs) also took a full part in training and will meet with Munster medical staff tomorrow in assessing their progress post-session.
Francis Saili (calf) will also be assessed by medical staff tomorrow after completing some rehab running pitchside, while Tomas O’Leary sat out today’s session after reporting a back spasm.
Tommy O’Donnell continued with his rehab training on the pitch at UL and there was good news for Johnny Holland (hamstring) and Peter McCabe (pec) with both players progressing to modified training.
Duncan Casey (pec), Peter O’Mahony (knee) and Stephen Archer (neck) continue to follow their respective rehab programmes.
