THE TRAINING LOADS were light at Munster’s University of Limerick training base today, but director of rugby Rassie Erasmus has no new injury concerns in the lead-up to Saturday’s Guinness Pro12 final against Scarlets.

Recovery was first on the agenda for most of the tournament’s top seeds after a convincing, but hard-fought 23 – 3 win over Ospreys at Thomond Park.

Keith Earls (shin), Andrew Conway (shoulder) and also Conor Murray — who got treatment on a shoulder knock during the game — are not in doubt to face Wayne Pivac’s dangerous Welsh side.

“It’s a different shoulder. Just a normal bump. Nothing serious,” Erasmus said in the province’s meeting room.

“We’re expecting everybody to train today. We won’t have a tough training session, because it was a pretty tough game on Saturday. But Earlsy looks okay. Andrew Conway had a bump on his shoulder, but he looks fine. Apart from that, everybody looks fit.”
