    With a British & Irish Cup game on Saturday (Tralee RFC 1pm), players such as Donncha O' Callaghan on the recovering list and players such as Felix Jones, Ian Nagle, Luke O' Dea and Johne Murphy back in the mix, it makes sense for Penney to delay finalising his side for the round Two Heineken Cup game. O'Callaghan took a part in training in the wet conditions and afterwards declared himself, 'happy enough' but he will be required to do the same again on Friday before knowing whether or not he's to be involved on Sunday.
    Ronan O'Gara is a definite non starter and while Penney refused to commit to a time for his return he did imtimate it would be a matter of weeks not months. The same applies to Keith Earls and Wian du Preez while it would appear that James Coughlan is making good progress after sustaining a groin injury against Ulster.

      RTE News said tonight that Earls is due back in 2-3 weeks; Penney said that Paulie's progress will continue to be a "rollercoaster" while he rehabs and gets back to full fitness.

        from the deadsite:
        Paul O'Connell and Donncha O'Callaghan both retired at a relatively early stage but there was nothing untoward in either case, O'Callaghan was just over a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Racing game while O'Connell had done enough in just his second game back. Felix Jones also came through unscathed after making his first appearance at this level since May and though Casey Laulala received attention several times in the early part of the game for a groin problem but played the full 80 and he is reported to be fit and well.
        Ronan O'Gara spent the game in front of a TV monitor in the Munster dug-out, miced-up to give his input and he is not expected to be involved against Zebre on Friday but along with Keith Earls could see a return to action in early November.
        Wian du Preez is looking at a similar timeframe while it's likely to be towards the end of November before Niall Ronan gets back.

          And James Coughlan?

                  Shame there's no word on Troy Smith. Thought he was back around now?
                  It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into.

                        Think he must be a talented lad, in spite of all the injuries, for the management to have stuck with him for so long. Jesus it would be great if he got fit and proved to be a quality player.

                          Only ever saw him with Munster A and he looked good but you'd have to fear for his career now.

                            He was only back in training when it happened.

                                Fair play to him for continuing to take the field with a broken hand. Goes a fair way towards explaining his recent lower than expected stats for passes made/received.
                                Article also mentions Jumpin Jesus Hanrahan will be given his first senior start. Aboy the kid!
                                Tis but a scratch.
