Connacht have confirmed that Jonny Murphy, Matthew Burke, Finlay Bealham and Kieran Marmion have all returned to training.

All four had been out for varying periods related to injuries they sustained before the lockdown.

The province have been preparing for a return to action, with a clash against Ulster at the Aviva Stadium to look forward to on 23 August.

Meanwhile, Oisin Dowling, Peter Robb and Quinn Roux are in rehab and are expected to get back on the training pitch towards the end of next month, while Sean O'Brien and Stephen Fitzgerald are still facing longer periods out.
