Jamison Gibson-Park In Contention For Munster Semi-Final Showdown

Jamison Gibson-Park is in contention for Leinster’s Guinness PRO14 semi-final with Munster at the RDS on Saturday. 

The Kiwi scrum-half suffered a hamstring injury in Leinster’s loss to Glasgow Warriors back in April but Leinster confirmed this afternoon that the 27-year-old will return to training this week and is due to be available for selection.

The same applies to flanker Josh van der Flier who will also return to rugby training this week as the 26-year-old makes a remarkable recovery from the groin injury he suffered against France while playing for Ireland in the Six Nations.

Elsewhere, it has been confirmed that Joe Tomane picked up a hamstring strain last week and as such, will be unavailable for selection for the clash with Munster.

Scrum coach John Fogarty also confirmed that there are no other major injury concerns from Saturday’s loss to Saracens in the Heineken Champions Cup final.

Barry Daly (collarbone), Mick Kearney (shoulder), Dan Leavy (knee), Adam Byrne (quad) remain on the long-term injury list.
