Munster's Robin Copeland may still make his debut on Friday after obtaining a passport to travel to Treviso after his old one was stolen.

“What's everybody worrying about??? I got this! Looking forward to Friday now! #gameday,” Copeland tweeted with a photo of his passport later on Wednesday.

Copeland's car was broken into on Tuesday night.

“Having your passport stolen along with all your kit, boots and other belongings the day before your about to travel is not fun!” tweeted Copeland.

Plans were hurriedly made to try and arrange replacement travel documents for the number eight in time for him to fly with the squad to Italy.

However given the short period of time available before the squad head out, a Munster spokesman admitted at the time that Copeland may have not been able to travel.

“We are in the process of trying to secure a new passport for Robin, but we don't know if we'll be able to get one in time,” said the Munster spokesperson to the Irish Times.
