Munster relief as O'Mahony set to make Toulouse showdown
Published 01/04/2014 | 02:30
O'Mahony's hamstring injury, a legacy of Ireland's successful Six Nations campaign, forced him into a late withdrawal ahead of last Saturday's Lansdowne Road defeat to Leinster. The Munster flanker will undergo a modified training week with the province as he seeks to notch up a second significant victory against French opposition this spring.
Ryan continues to receive treatment for a foot injury sustained against Treviso a fortnight ago, but there are understood to be complications surrounding the exact nature of the issue, hampering a precise decision as to his availability.
Prop John Ryan returns to training today after completing the IRB return-to-play protocols following a concussion against Treviso, which compensates in some part for the loss of Stephen Archer, ruled out for the next few weeks after sustaining a bulging disc in his neck at training late last week.
Hooker Damien Varley, who was replaced last Saturday after a previous foot injury flared up, will return to training as the week continues.
