Zebo Left Out As Munster Name Team For Racing Semi-Final

Zebo Left Out As Munster Name Team For Racing Semi-Final

Munster today named their team to face Racing 92 in the Champions Cup semi-final on Sunday afternoon, and elected to leave Simon Zebo - troubled by injury ever since being forced off against Toulon in tears - among the replacements. Part of the thinking behind that decision is the fact that Keith Earls has recovered from the knee injury he picked up in the final few minutes of the Grand Slam win against England.

Elsewhere, Jack O'Donoghue is fit to start.

Replacements: Rhys Marshall, James Cronin, John Ryan, Gerbrandt Grobler, Robin Copeland, James Hart, JJ Hanrahan, Simon Zebo


Elsewhere, Leinster have included Robbie Henshaw in their team to face Scarlets in Dublin on Saturday. As expected, Luke McGrath and Sean O'Brien miss out through injury with James Lowe excluded to allow Jamison-Gibson Park to play. Jordan Larmour is among the replacements, with Johnny Sexton named as captain.
