Munster vs Northampton Rugby Preview
Munster are assessing the condition of their captain Peter O’Mahony but will definitely be without full-back Mike Haley for the Bulls clash, while Fineen Wycherley is also a doubt this weekend.
Liam Coombes’ return improves their back-three options, while they will welcome back their Emerging Ireland contingent after the three-game tour of South Africa.
With Andrew Conway (knee), Simon Zebo (calf) and Keith Earls (thigh) out, the province’s resources are stretched in the wide channels.
Promising back-row Daniel Okeke has been ruled out for a matter of months after undergoing surgery on a hamstring injury, while Luke Rigney has been released after a short-term contract.
RG Snyman remains sidelined with his ongoing knee issue, while Jack Daly is also on the long term absentee list. Alex Kendellen and Paddy Kelly are out with head injuries.
