Joey Carbery Set For Munster Return After Year Out

Joey Carbery Set For Munster Return After Year Out

For the first time in more than a year, Joey Carbery has been named in a Munster matchday squad.

The out-half has been named on the bench for his side's Pro14 game against Cardiff Blues on Friday.

Due to an ankle injury initially picked up during a 2019 World Cup warm-up game against Italy, the last time that the 25-year-old played for the province was against Ulster in early January of last year.

Should he make an appearance off the bench against Cardiff, Billy Holland will overtake Ronan O'Gara to become the second most capped Munster player ever. Holland has made 240 appearances for the province.
