Irish internationals Keith Earls, Peter O'Mahony and Simon Zebo look set to return to action for the first time this season in this week's Rabodirect Pro12 clash with Treviso in Italy.

The trio took no part in last Friday's 43-21 victory over Zebre but it's expected that they will be included in this weekend’s squad with the team to be finalised on Thursday morning.

The squad are currently at a Lake Garda training centre after undergoing a recovery session yesterday

Ian Nagle and Tommy O’Donnell have both returned home and will undergo scans today after they picked up knocks on Friday.

Andrew Conway (groin) has remained on with the squad to see how he develops over the week.

James Downey who played 40 minutes on Friday night showed no ill effect following on from his recent quad tear.

At home in Munster, Felix Jones (shoulder) will meet with the specialist today to determine the status of his rehabilitation progress.
