Setback for Horan


International prop Marcus Horan has suffered another setback in his bid to regain his place for Munster and Ireland.

Horan was out for several months with a wrist injury and returned to play 51 minutes for Shannon against Garryowen in the Ulster Bank All-Ireland League last Friday.

He was named in the Shannon side that played St Mary's on Saturday but withdrew with a "slight twinge to his neck".

Horan must get game time before he can return for the province and is very unlikely to play against Treviso next Sunday.
