Foley hopeful on Copeland


Munster head coach Anthony Foley is hopeful that forward Robin Copeland will be fit to face Treviso next weekend following a head injury.

The Munster No 8 went off after 20 minutes of Friday's 27-24 defeat to Glasgow Warriors at Rugby Park with a head injury, but Foley is hopeful that the 28-year-old will return in time for the Pro 12 match against Treviso at the Stadio Monigo next Sunday.

"I thought he had a flying start to the game, so losing Robin was a blow. The nine days between matches will help with that so we will see how he is."

Irish flanker Tommy O’Donnell is expected to recover in time to join up with his country for the Six Nations against England at Twickenham next Sunday, after leaving the action against Warriors shortly after half-time with a stomach complaint.

"For him to get through to 45 minutes was exceptional. He was pretty ill before the game and he was pretty ill at half-time and for him to get it that effort was exceptional, especially with such a short turnaround,” said Foley.

Foley was pleased that his team fought back from a disastrous start in Kilmarnock that saw them 14-0 down after just eight minutes, but admits that yellow cards to scrum-half Tomas O’Leary and replacement prop James Cronin proved crucial in a tight match.

"We thought we could come here and win and we thought it was in our make-up to get it done and to come so close and not get it is frustrating," added Foley.
