Munster utility-back Keith Earls has resumed light training as he continues his recovery from a shoulder injury.
Earls sustained the injury while on international duty with Ireland, and only featured once more for the Musntermen before his season was brought to an end.
However, with the Thomond Park-outfit preparing to get their 2013/14 campaign underway on August 24, Earls has taken part in training in a limited capacity.
Stephen Archer has taken part in full training after being sidelined by a wrist injury, but Felix Jones (shoulder) and Luke O'Dea (wrist) are still some way off getting back out on the park.
Two of Munster's Lions representatives, Conor Murray and Simon Zebo, have returned to the team's Cork base, but fellow Lion Paul O'Donnell will arrive at a later date as he is on honeymoon.
