Ronan O'Mahony will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a fractured leg in last weekend's Prop12 victory over Treviso.

Treviso, bidding for a third home win on Saturday evening, were well out of their depth against a largely second-string Munster side. Munster, having lost skipper Billy Holland to illness prior to the match, had to make further changes when lock Dave O'Callaghan and winger O'Mahony suffered what seemed to be serious injuries.

And today Munster confirmed the extent of O'Mahony's injury.

"Saturday's bonus point victory against Treviso came at a price when Ronan O'Mahony and Dave O'Callaghan were forced to retire with injuries in the opening twenty minutes," read a Munster injury update.

"The medical team have confirmed that winger Ronan O'Mahony fractured his fibula, while back row Dave O'Callaghan is awaiting scan results for a knee injury.

"Billy Holland who was a late withdrawal from Saturday's game due to illness will not take part in training today. John Ryan will also sit out the session due to illness."

Munster, who are already guaranteed a Pro12 semi-final spot,  face Connacht in their final game this weekend at Thomond Park.
