    Leamy Limps Out Of Ulster Game
    29 December 2011, 12:10 pm
    By The Editor

    Denis Leamy has been ruled out of contention for a place in the Munster squad for tomorrow's game with Ulster after aggravating and old injury (hip) in training.
    He had been named along with Sean Scanlon (shoulder) in the extended squad announced for this game but withdrew from training in Cork on Wednesday. Like Scanlon the injuries will be re-assessed early next week but at this stage neither are ruled out of contention with the Benetton Treviso game in mind. Declan Cusack is another who has a shoulder injury keeping him sidelined just now bringing the number of walking wounded to eleven.
    Good news however is that Peter O'Mahony (jaw) is expected back in time for the Treviso game,Mike Sherry (ankle) has resumed light training (jogging), Felix Jones (foot) is looking at a return sometime in late January/early February while Troy Smith (knee) and David Wallace (knee) are on schedule for a return in February.
    Nothing can be confirmed about a return date for Jerry Flannery (calf) with Doug Howlett(achilles,6-8 months) gone for the season and Darragh Hurley (back injury) looking at up to four months out.

    Hurley is having a rotten ould season, wasn't it a calf injury he had at the start, and now he's got a back injury. Real shame for the guy.

    If Sherry is back jogging, I wonder how long that puts him away from match fitness. If we can complete getting out of the HEC group alright, we might have himself, Jones and Wallace returning during the six nations. That's be a some boost.

      Feel terribly sorry for Hurley, you'd have to think his future in the pro game is in doubt now.

        Looks like we will have Leamy and O'Mahony back for the last 2 Heineken games which is a boost. Curious that it doesn't give an estimated return date for Sherry alright. Would be great to have him back for the Saints game at least. The quarters of the Heineken aren't till the first week in April so everyone bar Hurley, Fla and Dougie should be back by then. Plenty of games between now and then for more guys to get injured of course...

          Hurley doesn't seem to have any luck at all.

            Some people are just bloody unlucky. Is Leamy out of the Ireland camp with injury too so? I wasn't sure why he wasn't on the list of internationals at Carton House.

                    Munster could slip out of the top four in the RaboDirect depending on how results go tomorrow but of more immediate concern will be the injuries picked up in Ravenhill on Friday.
                    They went into the game with 11 of their squad on the physio benches and three more are joining them after the Ulster clash.Tom Gleeson was the first to go in Ravenhill with a shoulder injury in the 27th minute to be followed by Tommy O'Donnell seven minutes later after his boot seemed to get stuck in the turf causing injury to his knee.
                    Then in the second half, on 50 minutes Damien Varley retired with a shoulder injury to be replaced by Denis Fogarty. Munster already have Mike Sherry on the treatment table leaving Fogarty and Sean Henry the hookers available if Varley's injury proves serious.
                    Next up for Munster is the visit of Treviso to Limerick next Saturday. The Italian side have won on the road three times already this season, twice in Ireland in Galway and Belfast. There other away win was in Glasgow.

                      He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                        On the injury front, of the three players, Damien Varley, Tom Gleeson and Tommy O'Donnell, who retired in the course of the game in Belfast, Varley looks to be the least serious but Gleeson(shoulder) and O'Donnell (knee) will require further medical examination later in the week to establish the full extent of their injuries.
                        Peter O'Mahony (jaw) is expected to resume training this week with a possible return, subject to medical clearance, against the Italians on the cards.

                          Sadly, agree, Joey. When he has gotten any game time at all, he looks really good but is permanently injured. Has been around for quite a long time now but still youthful for a prop. The fact that Munster are keeping him under contract indicates his quality and potential.

                            from the camera shot of O'Donnell on the bench when he came off he looked like he thought his season was over, poor guy was practically in tears. Varley looked like he got a stinger as he was shaking his hand coming off. No real shots of Gleeson to see how bad his was.

                              Yeah, I had the same feeling, he looked like he knew his season was over.
