Munster's injury problems appear to be easing ahead of Saturday's European Champions Cup game against the Leicester Tigers.

Andrew Conway, BJ Botha and Jack O'Donoghue have returned to full training while Conor Murray, Mike Sherry and Donnacha Ryan were also involved in this morning's workout and will now have their fitness assessed tomorrow.

Scrum-half Tomás O'Leary sat out today's workout with a back spasm.

Munster are second in their Champions Cup pool having won their first game and with their second match against Stade Francais postponed in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris.

Domestically, Munster are third in the Guinness Pro 12, behind Connacht and Scarlets.
