Munster trained under the spring sun in UL today as preparations continue for the rescheduled Round 12 Guinness PRO12 fixture away to Cardiff Blues on Friday night (KO 7:15), while Munster’s Dave Kilcoyne and the uncapped Andrew Conway have been added to the Ireland training squad.

On the injury front Mark Chisholm (concussion) continues to follow return to play to protocols while Billy Holland (also concussion) is now in the final stages of his return to play.  Both players will be assessed as the week progresses as will Tomás O’Leary (groin) who took part in modified training today.
 
It has been confirmed that Kevin O’Byrne sustained some bone bruising in the knee and a calf tear while in action with UL Bohs and will be sidelined for the next 4 to 6 weeks.
 
On a more positive note, Ronan O’Mahony (hamstring) trained fully last Friday and today and is in line for selection this week with Duncan Casey (pec) now taking part in modified scrums and modified contact training.
 
Denis Hurley (calf), Tyler Bleyendaal (quad), Peter O’Mahony and BJ Botha (both ACL) all continue with their respective rehab programmes.
 
Today also saw Dave Kilcoyne and the uncapped Andrew Conway called into the Ireland training squad for the final round of the RBS 6 Nations.  The duo join their Munster teammates Dave Foley, Tommy O’Donnell, Jack O’Donoghue (also uncapped), Donnacha Ryan, CJ Stander, Keith Earls, Conor Murray and Simon Zebo in Irish set-up.
 
Head Coach Anthony Foley will name his side to face Cardiff Blues at midday on Thursday.
 
On the club front, the academy’s Ned Hodson, Ryan Foley, Tomás Quinlan, Rory Burke and Liam O’Connor were all included in the matchday squad for Cork Constitution as they recorded an exciting 30-20 win over a game Nenagh Ormond side at Temple Hill in the Bank of Ireland Munster Senior Cup.  Quinlan kicked six penalties and one conversion for the hosts.
