      That's an extremely strong squad considering we are missing about half of our first choice players.

            Most of them should be available for the Dragons game on the 27th

              So are they back training with the rest of the squad now and
              just not allowed to play until after certain date?

                Munster sweat on Warwick fitness
                By Charlie Mulqueen


                Wednesday, September 02, 2009


                MUNSTER are hopeful Paul Warwick will be available to take his place at out-half when they begin their defence of the Magners League against Glasgow at Firhill on Friday night, (8pm Setanta Sport).


                Warwick hobbled off with a foot injury early in last Friday’s game against Leicester Tigers and remains a worry, according to team manager Shaun Payne. The Australian has done some limited training but if he doesn’t make it, then Jeremy Manning, the only other out-half in a 25-man strong squad announced yesterday, will wear the number 10 jersey.


                Although Munster will remain without their elite players until the beginning of October, the battle for places against the Scots is certain to be extremely keen.


                Peter Stringer and the New Zealander Toby Morland are the scrum-halves in the squad with the Munster management facing a decision how best to use the latter’s talents. He probably wouldn’t be here at all were it not for the injury to Tomás O’Leary along with the injuries afflicting the luckless Duncan Williams.


                Morland, who is on a five-month contract, has been excellent in the friendly games and in training and is clearly a very valuable addition to the panel.


                "He’s a class player," Payne agreed. "We give him a bit of a slagging because he was in the Chiefs team beaten by the Bulls by 60-odd points in the Super 14 final. But technically, he is very good, tough and nuggety, a typical Kiwi scrum-half."


                Another recent recruit, Frenchman Julian Brugnaut, will be challenging Marcus Horan and Tony Buckley for a starting place at prop while it will be interesting to see whether coach Tony McGahan keeps faith with the likes of Ian Nagle, Billy Holland, Tommy O’Donnell, Tom Gleeson, Scott Deasy, Felix Jones and Danny Barnes, the youngsters who have acquitted themselves so well up to now, or returns to the more seasoned campaigners.


                Apart from the Lions contingent, those not available to coach Tony McGahan on Friday are prop Darragh Hurley (currently recovering well after an operation on a disc in his neck); Jerry Flannery (who has recovered from the elbow injury that kept him out of the Lions tour but is now three weeks away from shaking off the effects of a calf muscle strain) and Niall Ronan, Ian Dowling and Nick Williams (all knee).


                The hugely positive news, however, concerns Tomás O’Leary, who according to Shaun Payne is recovering much more quickly than expected from the serious ankle break that cost him his place with the Lions.


                "He is well ahead of initial projections and we’re very confident that he will be back in the Magners League before the ERC begins," said Payne.


                "There was a stage when we feared he wouldn’t play before Christmas or the new year but he has made a significant recovery. A lot of that is down to himself and his work ethic and the effort put in by the physios and we’re very pleased about that".


                The Leinster squad to face the Scarlets in Saturday’s Magners League opener in Parc y Scarlets (KO: 6.30pm) has been named.


                Experienced quartet Leo Cullen, Shane Horgan, Bernard Jackman and Malcolm O’Kelly are joined in the squad for this week’s game by Academy prospects Brendan Macken and Niall Morris who impressed during pre-season.


                Girvan Dempsey, a substitute against London Irish, joins Isa Nacewa and Jonathan Sexton amongst the backs for the trip to Llanelli alongside summer signing Shaun Berne.


                Meanwhile, time is running out to sign up and become a Leinster season ticket holder for 2009/10. Record sales over the last few months have passed the 10,600 mark and the deadline is next Monday, September 7. Visit www.leinsterrugby.ie for details.


                MUNSTER: M. Horan, T. Buckley, J. Brugnaut, D. Fogarty, D. Varley, M. O’Driscoll, D. Ryan, I. Nagle, B. Holland, T. O’Donnell, N. Ronan, D. Leamy, J. Coughlan; P. Stringer, T. Morland,

                    <t>Things Looking Good On The Injury Front</t>
                    2 September 2009, 8:13 am
                    By Pat Geraghty



                    Besides the unavailability of Munster’s Lions
                    contingent, a fact that was known well in advance, injury sees the
                    likes of Darragh Hurley, Jerry Flannery, Nick Williams, Tomas O’Leary,
                    Ian Dowling and Ciaran O'Boyle omitted from the squad that flies out
                    tomorrow for the Magners League opener against Glasgow Warriors.

                    The long-term casualty of that list is <s&#111;ng>O'Boyle</s&#111;ng>
                    who is recovering from a hamstring injury and will not be seen until
                    sometime in 2010 but relatively speaking, news on the others is
                    positive.


                    <s&#111;ng>Darragh Hurley</s&#111;ng> is recovering from a neck operation while his front-row colleague <s&#111;ng>Jerry Flannery,</s&#111;ng>
                    has a slight calf muscle injury picked up in training in Portugal.
                    Hurley is expected to resume contact next week while Flannery is
                    thought to be about three weeks off a return to playing.


                    Team manager <s&#111;ng>Shaun Payne,</s&#111;ng> speaking at a media briefing yesterday in UL, also explained that the absence of <s&#111;ng>Ian Dowling</s&#111;ng> is down to a knee injury but one that is not thought to be serious.


                    <s&#111;ng>Nick Williams,</s&#111;ng> who Payne said was ‘flying’ in
                    pre-season training, is on the mend following successful knee surgery
                    to mend a damaged cartilage whilst <s&#111;ng>Tomas O’Leary</s&#111;ng> is
                    well ahead of schedule for a return to action.” Originally it was
                    reported that Tomas would not be back until around Christmas. But we
                    are hopeful thathe will be back on the pitch before the start of the
                    Heineken Cup. I’m not going to give a definite but he is way ahead of
                    schedule." said Payne.


                    And that continued the Manager, is down to his work ethic and
                    dedication and the work of the physios and fitness staff. Payne also
                    expressed his disappointment for Williams who he said had looked
                    exceptional in pre-season. "Nick had a lot of injury last season but he
                    really was going well in pre-season. Looked very fit. He’s a big boy,
                    very powerful with really great skill sets. He should be back around
                    Magners League 4 and we'd expect him to make an impression."



                    <s&#111;ng>Alan Quinlan’s</s&#111;ng> suspension ends on September 9th and there was also good news about scrum-half <s&#111;ng>Duncan Williams</s&#111;ng> who came through the Academy/Under20s clash last weekend with flying colours.


                    Payne is acutely aware of the difficult nature of his side’s opener,
                    “Yes it has proved a very difficult fixture for us. Last time we were
                    there it ended in a draw and the time before that I played in the game
                    we lost 24-13. So we haveit all to do on Friday but we will take
                    confidence from our matches to date realising of course that this game
                    will be a big step up.”

                        You can add Warwick out for another 2/3 weeks


                        Dowling out with a knee injury. No return dateas of today.

                          That may not be a big list but there's some key match 22 options there.
                          Did you play in the Garden of Eden?
                          Were the goalkeeper\'s gloves to you tossed?
                          For it seems to me you\'re the reason,
                          You\'re the reason why paradise lost.

                            Fair play to them.....nasty injury. Full recovery looking likely !!
