Carbery Unlikley To Be Fit But Earls And Kleyn Back For Munster

Written 1 week ago by Midlands Sport


Joey Carbery still remains “highly unlikely” to return for Munster in time for this weekend’s Heineken Champions Cup semi final with Saracens.

The Ireland out half hasn’t played since suffering a hamstring injury during Munster’s quarter final win against Edinburgh.

Speaking today, head coach Johann van Graan says he’ll give the player every chance to prove his fitness, but time is running out.

In better news for the province, Keith Earls and Jean Kleyn both look set to return to the team for Saturday’s game in Coventry.

Earls sat out the last two games as a precaution, having felt a tightness in his thigh.

Kleyn picked up a leg injury in the win against Cardiff 10 days ago
