Munster flanker CJ Stander will be out of action until January after breaking a bone in his hand.

The 22-year-old suffered the injury during a man-of-the-match full debut performance against Glasgow in the RaboDirect PRO12 at the weekend. 

Stander joins fellow back-rowers Niall Ronan, Sean Dougall and Tommy O'Donnell on the sidelines for Saturday's Heineken Cup match with Saracens at Thomond Park.

James Coughlan, who has returned from a groin injury sooner than expected, has been added to the squad.
