Munster suffer another Bok blow

SQUAD UPDATE: Munster’s lock stocks are starting to look a bit thin ahead of some big matches.


On Monday, the Irish province revealed that Springbok Jean Kleyn will be unavailable until the new year due to an eye injury suffered in a recent match against Leinster

He went for a specialist review last Tuesday and Wednesday and will have a further follow-up before Christmas.

It’s a big blow for Munster who were already without fellow Bok lock RG Snyman who is out until March with a chest/shoulder injury he suffered in the World Cup Final.

In further bad news, Jack Daly (ankle) and Liam Coombes (shoulder) both underwent surgery last week and will begin rehabilitation under the medical department.

There is good news for Patrick Campbell (ankle) as he has returned to team training. Jack O’Donoghue (ankle) will also return to training this week.

Peter O’Mahony (shoulder) is improving but will remain unavailable for their Champions Cup Round One match against Bayonne.


The other players that are continuing with their rehab are Joey Carbery (wrist), Roman Salanoa (knee), Mike Haley (hip), Cian Hurley (ankle/achilles) and Niall Scannell (groin).

After the Bayonne clash, Munster will travel to England to face the Exeter Chiefs.
