O’Callaghan boost

Former Lion Donncha O’Callaghan has handed Munster a boost ahead of their Heineken Cup clash with Racing Metro.

The second-row, who has toured New Zealand and South Africa with the Lions, suffered a hamstring injury in Munster’s loss to Leinster on Saturday.

But he is on course to make a full recovery in time for his side’s European opener at Stade de France.

“Donncha O'Callaghan, who was forced to retire (hamstring) in the course of the Leinster game, had a scan yesterday and indications are he will be in the squad for the Racing Metro game when it's announced later in the week,” read a Munster statement.

“Marcus Horan is also expected to be in contention for a place in the squad while a decision on Niall Ronan will be delayed until it is seen how he comes through training this week.

“Mike Sherry left the stadium on Saturday on crutches but merely as a precaution after he twisted an ankle but the positive news from the weekend was the return to action of Luke O'Dea who played with his club Shannon while Johne Murphy has returned to full fitness as has Felix Jones who will be back in action ahead of schedule in the coming weeks”
