Munster in bother for Ulster clash

By Cian Tracey

Donnacha Ryan has joined Munster's growing casualty list ahead of their trip to face Ulster in the Pro12 League at Kingspan stadium on Saturday.

The Ireland second-row came through Sunday's defeat to Leinster but later complained of a problem with his knee.

He underwent a scan yesterday and Munster are awaiting the results but Ryan is a serious doubt for the game against Ulster and also for Ireland's mini-camp which begins on Sunday.

"Like a lot of injuries, once they cool down, the adrenaline comes out, some things flare up," coach Anthony Foley explained.

"I can't really tell you if it's serious or not until I know what it is. I know he wasn't going to be training today anyway regards to a dead leg.

"The scan on the knee has come up as he has cooled down after the game. I just need to find out more information on it."

James Cronin is definitely ruled out with a knee injury and Munster will wait to give a further update until the results of his scan come back.

Conor Murray is also a major doubt as he continues to struggle with a hip injury but the news was more positive for Keith Earls who was given the all-clear following a neck injury suffered last Sunday.
