Joey Carbery will be fit to face Ulster on Friday after coming through his first appearance of the season for Munster unscathed.

The Ireland outhalf was a second-half replacement for JJ Hanrahan in the 15-6 defeat to Leinster at Thomond Park last Saturday in the Guinness Pro14, having been out since the World Cup with a longstanding ankle issue.

"As far as I know, he is fine," said forwards coach Graham Rowntree.

It is good to see him on the field. He is a class operator. It is good to have him back.

"He is crucial, he got some game-time under his belt. He has been out for a long time. You can see his frustration. But he has slid straight back in and is training well.

"As far as I know he will be fine for Friday."

Hanrahan has not been so fortunate however, and he and Tommy O'Donnell will both undergo scans for hamstring injuries this week.

Hooker Kevin O'Byrne also injured his ankle in the loss to Leinster and will miss this week's game but Dave Kilcoyne (quad) and Chris Cloete (arm), who both suffered bruising, should be fit. 

Gavin Coombes has completed the return to play protocols following the Connacht game and has resumed training.

Ireland forward Tadhg Beirne will undergo his previously announced ankle surgery this week.
