Jones set for return

FELIX JONES could return to action for the first time since missing out on Ireland's World Cup campaign through injury by lining out for Shannon against Young Munster tomorrow night, WRITES HUGH FARRELLY.

The full-back has not played since sustaining a foot injury during Ireland's World Cup warm-up games last August, but it is hoped that he will be available to line out in the AIL fixture in Thomond Park.

If he comes through that match unhurt, Jones could be into the mix for Munster's Pro12 clash in Treviso the following week.

There is also speculation that Cardiff centre Casey Laulala could sign for Munster after reports that the All Black was in Limerick last week for a fitness test.
