Murray undergoes thigh scan

Munster scrum-half Conor Murray has undergone a scan on the thigh injury he suffered in the PRO14 semi-final defeat to Leinster last Friday night.

The Ireland and Lions international was forced to leave the field after 71 minutes and now faces a race to be fit in time for the 2020-21 season opener at the beginning of October.

His progress will also be closely monitored by Ireland head coach Andy Farrell ahead of the resumption of the Six Nations campaign against Italy on October 24th.

Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that second row Jean Kleyn will return to training this week after a neck injury kept him out of Munster’s final two games of the 2019-20 campaign against Connacht and Leinster respectively.

He is expected to be fully fit for the return of the PRO14 in three weeks’ time.
