Earls Returns To Munster Training

Munster Scrum Keith Earls was back in training with Munster today. Assistant coach Ian Costello has confirmed that the Ireland winger is closing-in on his first appearance of the season after taking part in this morning’s training in Cork and the province are now waiting to see how his knee injury reacts to the work-out. Prop James Cronin also played a part in this morning’s session as he steps-up his recovery from an ankle problem. Both players have an outside chance of returning in time for this weekend’s trip to face Zebre.
