Munster Report ‘No Fresh Injury Concerns’ Ahead Of Final

Munster Report ‘No Fresh Injury Concerns’ Ahead Of Final

Munster gathered at the High Performance Centre in UL today where they commenced preparations for next Saturday’s GUINNESS PRO12 final against the Scarlets at the Aviva Stadium.

Fittingly, as Munster head into such a massive week, the province’s director of rugby Rassie Erasmus was pleased to report that there are no fresh injury concerns following the semi-final win over the Ospreys at Thomond Park.

James Cronin was a late withdrawal prior the game with Keith Earls and Andrew Conway picking up respective knocks to the shin and shoulder respectively. However, all three players are set to train fully this week.

Erasmus said: “We’re expecting everybody to train today. We won’t have a tough training session, because it was a pretty tough game on Saturday. But Earlsy looks okay. Andrew Conway had a bump on his shoulder, but he looks fine. Apart from that, everybody looks fit.”

Following a coin toss that took place in advance of the semi-finals, it has been confirmed that Munster will be in the home dressing room – for the first time – at the Aviva Stadium and will wear their alternate navy kit for Saturday’s GUINNESS PRO12 decider.

Ronan O’Mahony (fibula), Robin Copeland (shoulder), Jean Kleyn (neck), Dave Foley (wrist), Sean McCarthy (knee), Mike Sherry (back) and Dave O’Callaghan (knee) remain on the province’s injury list.

Meanwhile, as tickets for the PRO12 final have been on public sale for a number of months, only a limited number of tickets are held for the two participating teams.

Consequently, Munster’s ticket allocation will be distributed among the Munster Rugby Supporters Club members, Season/10 Year-Ticket holders and clubs. The Munster allocation is available at a reduced club price to the public sale price.

With limited ticket availability and in an effort to ensure fairness for fans of both finalists, PRO12’s general ticket sale was frozen at 5pm on Friday, and tickets returned to general sale on conclusion of the Munster v Ospreys match. PRO12 final tickets are on sale via the PRO12 general sale here.
