That's 80 minutes of my life I wasted and won't get back anyway. Munster were brutal last night. They're very lucky the got the easier pool in the pro14 imho.

What's wrong with Zebo? Did he go off against Edinburgh? I was only half-watching that game, not exactly a thriller.

EDIT: They're definitely going to struggle if they're down those two. They've already lost Farrell and Taute in the centre, and as Leinster fans we're all familiar with the week-to-week type of injury scratch that Conway is currently undergoing ... it means that the injury isn't responding in line with the way that it is projected and is thus either a] worse or b] different than initially diagnosed.

Their full injury updated:

While Peter O’Mahony, CJ Stander, Conor Murray and Keith Earls all played a huge role in securing the Grand Slam in Twickenham on Saturday, Earls became the latest injury concern as he hobbled off after 73 minutes with a knee injury. The Limerick-man will undergo a scan and require specialist assessment to determine the full extent of the injury.

Head Coach Johann van Graan has been dealt a further blow with the news that Tyler Bleyendaal and Duncan Williams have both been ruled out for the remainder of the season. Bleyendaal required surgery in a bid to rectify ongoing symptoms with his neck, while Williams underwent surgery after sustaining facial injuries during a training session last week.

Following Friday night’s defeat against Edinburgh in Murrayfield, Simon Zebo (hamstring) and Alex Wootton (hip flexor) will be reviewed by the medical department today, while Jean Kleyn is following return to play protocols after sustaining a concussion.

Niall Scannell returns to full training this week as he recovers from a rib injury sustained against Glasgow Warriors at the end of February.

Continuing to rehab: Andrew Conway (knee), Chris Cloete (arm), Jaco Taute (knee), Chris Farrell (knee).


Given that their Ireland players won't play next weekend, they will be going in to the Toulon match at best totaaly undercooked and at worst totally fupped.

Earls out for 6 weeks apparently, better than expected. Over in Dubai atm with Murray, Rob, Rory, so couldn't be that bad.

I hope JvG protects Kieth Earls from himself and makes sure he doesn't try come back until he is 100% fit, sometime theplayers have to be protected from themselves. 8)

Hopefully someone like Gerry Flannery or Felix uses the performance of Mitrea and the TMO to stir up the siege mentality that brings out the best in Munster before Toulon get here next week. :twisted: :twisted: :evil:

Munster have been a real enigma this season.
A tendency to just not show up from time to time but when the big European games come along they've looked a very tough nut to crack.
If the Europe Munster show up (I think they will) then Toulon will have a problem.
Earls is a loss.

It's certainly a long time since I felt in their debt, to this extent. Well done Munster, welcome back.

To be fair to the ref, he did give the last try to Munster from the most forward pass you'll see all season. :)
