Ireland international Joey Carbery will miss the remainder of the season for Munster following an ankle surgery.

The 24-year-old sustained the injury during Ireland's World Cup warm-up game against Italy and was forced to miss the ongoing Six Nations tournament with a wrist injury that he suffered during the Pro 14 game against Ulster in January.

With Tyler Bleyendaal also down with a neck injury, JJ Hanrahan will continue with the fly-half role in Carbery's absence.

Carbery has played 22 Tests for Ireland and has scored 78 points in it. He also featured in three games for Ireland during the 2019 World Cup.

Munster are positioned second in Conference B table of Pro 14 with nine wins from 13 games.
