New Munster back-row forward Robin Copeland has resolved his stolen passport issue and is now in line to make his Munster debut this Friday.

Early this afternoon the back row had tweeted that his passport was stolen along with the rest of his rugby gear on Tuesday night.

However, the situation was sorted  a couple of hours later when Copeland tweeted: "What's everybody worrying about??? I got this! Looking forward to Friday now!"

The accompanying picture showed a picture of him holding an Irish passport.

Copeland, who joined the province from Cardiff Blues in the off-season, had tweeted earlier:  “Having your passport stolen along with all your kit, boots and other belongings the day before your about to travel is not fun!”
