Season over for O’Donnell

Munster flanker Tommy O’Donnell has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery for a shoulder injury.

O’Donnell underwent surgery for the injury he sustained against Scarlets in round 18. The flanker has been ruled out for the remainder of the campaign and joins a significant rehabilitation list, with Keith Earls, Tyler Bleyendaal, Duncan Williams, Chris Cloete, Jaco Taute and Chris Farrell already sidelined.

Following the British and Irish Cup quarter-final against Leinster A on Friday, hooker Kevin O’Byrne will require further medical review for a hip injury he sustained in the first half.

After a bruising and battering encounter against French heavyweights Toulon on Saturday, the Munster squad will depart for South Africa today.
