Munster's Doug Howlett to miss crucial RaboDirect clash with Ospreys

Munster's New Zealand international wing Doug Howlett is to undergo a scan and seek specialist opinion this week after being injured during the RaboDirect Pro12 clash against Ospreys on Saturday.

Munster say Howlett has been ruled out of their back-to-back Heineken Cup appointments with the Scarlets during the next fortnight.

Initial examination has suggested Achilles tendon damage suffered late in a game that Munster lost 19-13 at the Liberty Stadium.
