There was also further positive news for Jack Dunne who aims to return to full training this week as he returns from an ankle injury.

Unfortunately two players have been ruled out of the game this weekend.
Harry Byrne will have further assessment on a hip injury today having been injured during the first half against Zebre Parma, while Rory O’Loughlin, who injured his shoulder against Dragons, also requires further assessment this week.
