Munster head coach Johann van Graan is very hopeful of having Joey Carbery available for Saturday's Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final against Edinburgh in Murrayfield.

Carbery has been out of action since picking up a hamstring injury in Ireland camp during the Guinness Six Nations Championship.

The out-half has not played since the round 2 win over Scotland, ironically in Murrayfield, on 9 February.

Carbery has been working with both Ireland and Munster strength and conditioning staff in an effort to get back to full fitness and is expected to take part in Munster training this afternoon.

"Joey will be reintegrated back into training this afternoon then we'll see how he goes for the week," Van Graan told RTÉ Sport.

"But we're very hopeful that he'll play. He wants to be ready and all indications are that he'll be fine."

Van Graan reports no new injury issues ahead of the game but Brian Scott (foot), James Cronin (leg) and Tommy O’Donnell (shoulder) are continuing their rehabilitation.
