De Allende boost for Munster ahead of Pro14 return
Munster have reported some good news on the injury front ahead of the return of the Guinness Pro14 next month. The Irish province had enjoyed a down week following their return to squad training on June 22, with players and staff reporting back to their high performance centre in Limerick today for another four-week training period ahead of the August return to Pro14 action.
As part of their return to training, senior players and high performance staff have undergone a second round of PCR testing today.
And the province have confirmed that headline signing Damian de Allende is expected to return to training in the coming weeks as he steps up his rehab from a calf problem.
The World Cup winner signed for Munster alongside his fellow Springbok RG Snyman in January, with the pair both arriving in Ireland in recent weeks. If fit, de Allende will be eligible to line out for his new team next month.
The out-half has only played twice for Munster since his former side Leinster knocked them out of the Pro14 in the semi-final stages in May of last year.
Munster head coach Johann van Graan previously outlined that he hopes to have Carbery available for selection some time in September.
