Ireland hooker omitted from Tony McGahan’s squad for Magner’s League showdown with with Benetton Treviso in Limerick on Friday.

MUNSTER HOOKER JERRY Flannery has been omitted from the Munster squad for Friday night’s home Magners League clash with Benetton Treviso.

The Ireland star was introduced  as a second-half substitute during the Reds’ impressive Heineken Cup rout of Toulon on Saturday but he was forced to leave the field early after suffering a recurrence of his calf injury.

Flannery was also omitted from the Ireland squad of the November International series named by Declan Kidney yesterday.

Meanwhile this afternoon, Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin has named an enlarged squad for their meeting with Edinburgh on the same night at Murrayfield.

Fullback Jamie Smith (shoulder/rib) and centre Darren Cave (hamstring), who are still recovering from injuries sustained against Aironi two weeks ago, have been left out. Simon Danielli, who was hurt during last Sunday’s match against Biarritz, is also omitted.

McLaughlin promises to name his starting XV tomorrow.

Munster squad (v Treviso): A Quinlan, B Holland, D Varley, Darragh Hurley, Dave Ryan, D Wallace, D Hurley, D Leamy, D Ryan, D O’Callaghan, D Howlett, D Williams, I Dineen, J Coughlan, J Hayes, J Murphy, K Earls, M Horan, M O’Driscoll, M Sherry, N Ronan, P Warwick, P O’Mahony, P Stringer, R O’Gara, S Deasy, T Buckley, W du Preez.
