Munster sweat over Jack Crowley’s fitness ahead of crucial period

Ireland flyhalf Jack Crowley may be sidelined after picking up a lower leg/calf injury during Munster’s win over Connacht last weekend.

Rowley had a scan yesterday, the results of which have yet to be confirmed.

Munster hold their weekly press conference this afternoon, when an update on Crowley’s fitness is expected.

The 22-year-old is a doubt for Friday night’s trip to Edinburgh, as is Mike Haley, after failing an HIA on Saturday night. The full-back has entered graded return-to-play protocols.

Peter O’Mahony passed his HIA but was removed due to a face/blood injury. However, the captain will train again this week.

Munster are already without a host of players for what is a crucial period, including Conor Murray (groin), Stephen Archer (ankle), Tom Ahern (shoulder), RG Snyman (knee), Fineen Wycherley (shoulder), Paddy Kelly ( head). ), Jack Daly (knee), Jack O’Sullivan (knee), Andrew Conway (knee) and Keynan Knox (knee) all remain on the sidelines.

In more positive news, Keith Earls is available for selection again, which will come as a timely boost ahead of the start of the Heineken Champions Cup next week.
