Munster will lose the services of Academy fly-half Ben Healy for their upcoming Heineken Champions Cup game against Clermont following an injury.

The 21-year-old came off the bench in the 59th minute during the game against Harlequins but suffered a couple of blows late in the game. Healy was first struck in the 62nd minute by Alex Dombrandt which saw the Quins captain sin-binned.

Five minutes later Healy was also dangerously tackled by Joe Marler with the latter going unpunished.

Following the game, Munster boss Johann van Graan expressed his frustration on the Quins players for intentionally targeting Healy.

"He did really well, kicked a magnificent penalty. We're very worried about him, he took two late hits there.

“We're going to get him checked out now. Certain things in the game are just unacceptable. He's now got injured because of that.”

Meanwhile, Jeremy Loughman and Niall Scannell have returned to full training after recovering from a shoulder and a neck injury respectively but Matt Gallagher has underwent a shoulder surgery last week.

Munster started the Heineken Champions Cup with a 21-7 win over Harlequins at Thomond Park last weekend.
