Keith Earls has emerged as an injury doubt for Munster's Champions Cup game at Leicester on Saturday (3.15pm, live on RTÉ Radio 1).

The Ireland winger has a groin injury and a decision on his fitness is expected on Friday.

Meanwhile, head coach Johan Erasmus says he believes the province has a good case to hold on to centre Jaco Taute.

The South African, who signed on a short-term contract, is eager to extend his stay.

The move must be approved by the IRFU.
