Munster are yet to return to training at their High Performance Centre as they await the results of their latest round of COVID-19 tests. 

Earlier this week, one senior player tested positive for coronavirus, while six other close contacts are restricting their movements. 

That resulted in training being stood down, and the HSE notified to begin contact tracing.

The senior player was not part of the panel that travelled to Parc y Scarlets last weekend, but the level of involvement of the other six is unclear.

The province could be without as many as seven players for their next game, without even taking into account their lengthy injury list.

Munster say they still expect to meet for their Captain’s Run tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s Pro 14 visit of Edinburgh to Thomond Park.

Captain Peter O’Mahony has been cleared to play in that game, despite a red card away to Scarlets last week. A disciplinary review found his sending off warranted no further punishment. 

Munster statement: 

Munster Rugby staff and players will not return to the HPC this afternoon as the province awaits the full results of yesterday’s round of PCR testing.

There will be a further update once the full results are received.

The squad are expected to meet for their Captain’s Run tomorrow ahead of Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 encounter again Edinburgh at Thomond Park (ko 7.35pm).
