Ankle Injury Leaves O’Donnell Doubtful For Glasgow Trip

Ankle Injury Leaves O’Donnell Doubtful For Glasgow Trip

Following on from the rescheduled Champions Cup game against Racing 92, Tommy O’Donnell is Munster’s main injury concern at this point.

Tommy O’Donnell started against the Parisian side after recovering from an ankle sprain sustained against Connacht a week earlier, however the flanker suffered a knock to his other ankle during the bonus point win in France and was forced to leave the pitch after 48 minutes. 

The Tipperary man will be reviewed by the Munster medical staff as the week continues but is a doubt for the round 5 trip to Glasgow. After overcoming illness, South African forwards Jean Kleyn and Thomas du Toit will return to full training this week.

While in the Munster ‘A’ team’s British & Irish Cup bonus point win victory to Doncaster, Sam Arnold was replaced at half-time after sustaining a knee injury. The centre will undergo a scan this week for further investigation.

Scrum half Angus Lloyd is not available to feature in the B&I Cup competition as he is cup-tied after featuring for Ulster ‘A’ in the earlier rounds.

The Munster ‘A’ side lead Pool 2 after three successive bonus point wins and, although through to the knockout stages, the result of next Friday’s return encounter with Doncaster will confirm if it is a home or away quarter-final to be played on the weekend of March 10.

Darren Sweetnam (knee), Alex Wootton (shoulder), Sean McCarthy (knee), Mark Chisholm (concussion), Duncan Casey (knee), Mike Sherry (back) and Cathal Sheridan (ankle) are all currently sidelined for Munster.
