An aggravated knee injury sustained in the 14-6 win over Scarlets in Saturday means Andrew Browne is also “unlikely to be available”, but his secondrow partner Quinn Roux has trained this week and the 24-year-old South African is “hoping to be fighting fit ahead of the team announcement on Friday” , despite an ankle sprain.
Aly Muldowney’s return to fitness could compensate for the absence of Browne after he was forced to adhere to return-to-play concussion protocols, having missed the last two games.
