Date published: December 9 2015

Munster have received a boost ahead of their Champions Cup clash with Leicester on Saturday after Conor Murray returned to full training.

The Ireland half-back had been struggling with a foot injury but trained on Tuesday, as did Mike Sherry (knee) and Donnacha Ryan (ribs).

The trio were assessed after the session, with Munster also releasing an update on their other injured players ahead of European action.

"Having recovered from illness, both Andrew Conway and Jack O'Donoghue returned to take a full part in training today at the University of Limerick, as did BJ Botha who has now completed his return-to-play protocols after sustaining a concussion against Connacht over a week ago," it read.

"Francis Saili (calf) will also be assessed by medical staff tomorrow after completing some rehab running pitchside, while Tomas O'Leary sat out today's session after reporting a back spasm.

"Tommy O'Donnell continued with his rehab training on the pitch at UL and there was good news for Johnny Holland (hamstring) and Peter McCabe (pec) with both players progressing to modified training.

"Duncan Casey (pec), Peter O'Mahony (knee) and Stephen Archer (neck) continue to follow their respective rehab programmes."
