Loosehead concern for Munster with Kilcoyne and Cronin being assessed for Clermont

MUNSTER COULD HAVE to take on Clermont in the Stade Marcel Michelin without either of their front-line loosehead props as both are being assessed by the medical team this week.

The province last night said that a knee injury to Dave Kilcoyne would continue to be assessed throughout the week.

With his back-up James Cronin is ‘under medical review’ with a shoulder complaint, John Ryan could be handed the number one jersey for the trip to France.

The southern province have already ruled out winger Gerhard van den Heever after the South African picked up a knee injury in the 9 – 16 home defeat to the Top 14 side.

Anthony Foley will have until Sunday before sending his side back into action again, and he will hope Eusebio Guinazu can recover quickly as the Argentine re-joins the squad in training along side Robin Copeland, Paddy Butler and Andrew Smith.
