Mafi set for 'a' comeback

LIFEIMI MAFI returns to action tomorrow when he lines out in the centre for Munster 'A' against Ulster 'A' in Nenagh.

The 28-year-old has been sidelined since undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury last May and his recovery is a welcome boost for Munster.

Mafi partners Ivan Dineen in midfield, with Denis Hurley and Simon Zebo on the wings. Scott Deasy and Conor Murray form the half-back combination, with James Coughlan at No 8.

Anthony Foley's side had an impressive 19-7 victory over Leinster at Donnybrook last weekend, when Deasy proved to be the match-winner with a second-half intercept try.
