Munster are hopeful that Ireland centre Keith Earls will be fit to face Ulster on Saturday in their Heineken Cup quarter-final.
The 30-cap international limped from the field in the 67th minute of Munster's clash with Leinster on Saturday. But his side have alleviated concerns over the 24-year-old claiming him to be "fit and well" ahead of their match at Thomond Park.
And in other team news - Ireland trio Paul O'Connell, Donnacha Ryan and Conor Murray could all be fit in time for the Heineken Cup match. Ryan was back in training last Thursday while former British & Irish Lions skipper O'Connell is set to resume training this week along with promising scrum-half Murray.
