Munster Rugby's Mike Haley, CJ Stander, Damian de Allende and RG Snyman all required treatment for superficial burns following a fire pit accident over the weekend.

The province confirmed the news via a statement on Monday evening, saying that Haley and Stander sustained burns to their hands while De Allende and Snyman sustained more substantial burns to their legs, hands and face.

De Allende and Snyman, were named in Jacques Nienaber’s Springbok squad for the upcoming Lions series on Saturday, and are expected to link up with the squad on completion of their provincial programmes.

The pair though now have to meet a specialist again later in the week and it's not yet known when they'll be back training.

Munster play Zebre in the Guinness Rainbow Cup on Friday.

Commenting on the accident, Head Coach Johann van Graan said, “We are hugely relieved that the lads are all ok.

“The players have all been treated and are being well looked after with Damian and RG meeting the specialist again later this week to review next steps of their recovery.”

In further squad news the Munster Rugby medical team have confirmed that Conor Murray, Chris Farrell and Roman Salanoa have all returned to training ahead of Friday night’s Rainbow Cup game against Zebre.

There were also no fresh injury concerns to report following Friday’s Munster ‘A’ game against the Ireland U20s.
