JEAN KLEYN IS set to miss the next two months, ruling him out of Munster’s Champions Cup quarter-final against Toulouse.

The South African lock, who has made 13 appearances this season, injured his neck in the win over the Newport Gwent Dragons.

Kleyn met with a specialist this week to assess the damage and is expected to miss “approximately eight to 10 weeks,” Munster said on Friday.

An eight-week recovery would see him return in time for the final three rounds of the Pro12 regular season, but anything longer would leave Kleyn with a race to be fit for the Champions Cup semis on the weekend of 22/23 April should Munster get there.
