Peter O'Mahony is due back at Munster training this week
Ireland hero Peter O'Mahony will have little time to reflect on his Man of the Match performance against 6 Nations champions England last week as he heads straight back into training with Munster Rugby this week.
The Champions Cup quarter-finalists have to travel to Italy this weekend for their final PRO12 fixture before hosting Toulouse at Thomond Park on Saturday, 1 April. New cap Andrew Conway, John Ryan and Niall Scannell were back with their clubmates in Limerick on Monday, while O'Mahony is expected to link up with the squad later in the week.
Simon Zebo, Donnacha Ryan, CJ Stander, Conor Murray and Keith Earls have all been given a down week of rest and recovery before the vital home Champions Cup clash. Murray and Earls are both carrying injuries from the 6 Nations, with shoulder and shin problems respectively.
International prop James Cronin is fit to return for this weekend's game against Zebre after overcoming a finger problem, while Alex Wootton's shoulder injury has recovered for him to take a full part in training this week.
South African lock Jean Kleyn's rehabilitation for a neck injury saw him undergo surgery in Dublin last week, while
Dave Foley is set for an operation on his wrist this week. Both players are out for the rest of the season, but Springbok star Jean Deysel is expected to arrive in Limerick this Wednesday to provide cover.
Centre Francis Saili (knee), outside half Ian Keatley (knee), lock Sean McCarthy (knee) and hooker Mike Sherry (back) are all unavailable for this week's PRO12 fixture.
