Munster's win in Cardiff last weekend came at a cost after Ian Keatley and Francis Saili both suffered knee injuries during the victory.

Out-half Keatley left the field after 21 minutes following a sprain to his posterior cruciate ligament while centre Saili was later withdrawn after damaging his collateral ligament.

In a release, Munster said that as of yet there are no 'definite timelines' on when the duo might return.

Munster's next game is away to Zebre in the Pro12 on March 25, before hosting Toulouse in the Champions Cup quarter-final in Thomond Park the following Saturday.
