Munster Injury Crisis Continues To Grow As Backrower Is Carted Off The Field

Munster’s injury crisis continues as promising backrower Jack O’Donoghue has been carted off with what looks like a neck injury after Edinburgh lock Fraser McKenzie was sin binned for aiming for the neck during a routine clean out.

Play was stopped for several minutes after the collision with O’Donoghue eventually being carted off from the field after he was unable to get back to his feet following initial treatment with Munster medical staff.

The injury ended O’Donoghue’s afternoon after just 12 minutes of play and adds to Munster’s growing list of injury concerns with Tommy O’Donnell, Simon Zebo, Dave Foley, Francis Saili and Peter O’Mahony all currently sidelined.

There is a question as to whether or not McKenzie should have been let off with just a yellow but, either way, Munster’s injury woes continue as O’Donoghue is now the fifth Munster player to be injured since Munster’s season began on September 3.
