Conor Murray will be available for Munster’s Pro14 quarter-final against Benetton at Thomond Park on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3.0pm).
There had been concern over the fitness of the Ireland scrumhalf, after he sustained a neck injury during the warm-up ahead of last weekend’s 27-14 win over Connacht in Limerick.
The 30-year-old was pulled from that fixture by head coach Johann van Graan as a precaution - however the province confirmed he will train fully on Monday.
The Ireland duo missed the Champions Cup semi-final defeat to Saracens but their fitness would prove a major boon as the province bid to get past Benetton and set up a mouth-watering Pro14 semi-final date with Leinster.
Munster also confirmed Dan Goggin has passed a HIA and will also resume training on Monday.
