Peter OMahony following win over Gloucester

MUNSTER captain Peter O'Mahony remains "open-minded" about featuring in his side's final Champions Cup pool game against Exeter Chiefs this weekend but a decision on his participation will not be made until later this week.

"He's gone for a scan and had some treatment over the weekend,” said Munster coach Johann van Graan this weekend.

"He got a bang on the ribs. And with the rib cartilage there is a lot of pain, it just doesn't go away. We will give him every opportunity to play.

"However, if you're a forward it's not something you can hide when you are going into the mauls and the scrums.

"I have had a chat with him and he is open-minded about it. But he has to work with it first. We'll make a decision on it later this week."
