Munster 10 Bleyendaal forced off early against Glasgow

Rory Scannell took over at out-half after just eight minutes in Cork tonight.

MUNSTER WILL BE hoping to see out-half Tyler Bleyendaal make a quick return to good health after the Kiwi was not cleared to continue following a head injury assessment during tonight’s Pro12 meeting with Glasgow Warriors.

The southern province take on Saracens in the Champions Cup semi-final in a fortnight’s time, after hosting Ulster during next weekend’s Easter inter-pros.

Bleyendaal, who took a seat on the Munster bench midway through the first half, has been a revelation since getting an injury-free run in red this season, topping the Pro12′s try-assist table as well as leading the goal-kicking accuracy charts.

With Ian Keatley still to complete his recovery from a knee injury,  Rory Scannell was called upon to replace Bleyendaal when walked off an eighth minute HIA. By that stage the former Crusader had a conversion to his name, adding the extras to James Cronin’s try to give Munster a 7 – 0 lead they would hold through the half-time break.
