Munster Rugby have provided an injury update after their 26-17 win over Leinster at Thomond Park in the Guinness PRO14 on Saturday.
In what was an incredibly physical affair, the southern province have only noted Chris Cloete as a fresh injury worry ahead of Saturday’s trip to Galway to take on Connacht.
Cloete left the pitch on a stretcher with a neck injury after Tadhg Furlong collided with the flanker when attempting to clear out a ruck.
The southern province have confirmed that Cloete “was brought to hospital for assessment” and that “initial investigations were normal but he will undergo further assessment this week to determine the extent of his neck injury.”
Based on that, it’s unlikely Cloete will be involved this weekend but supporters will hope that further assessment will prove that the injury isn’t too serious.
Elsewhere, Munster have confirmed that Brian Scott (foot), James Cronin (leg) Jack O’Donoghue (knee) and Dave O’Callaghan (foot) are progressing with their rehabilitation.
