MUNSTER AND IRELAND WINGER ANDREW CONWAY will be out for three or four months confirmed Munster Rugby today.
The 31-year-old underwent a procedure on his knee last week and is expected to continue his rehabilitation with the medical department for the coming three to four months.
The setback means the Ireland international could also miss the rest of the season for Munster.
He first picked up the knee injury in February of 2022, before aggravating it in Ireland's Six Nations win against England at Twickenham in March.
Despite featuring for Munster last May, the injury has forced him to have surgery last week.
🗞️ SQUAD UPDATE | The Munster squad are preparing for next Friday's #URC clash against Ospreys at Thomond Park (7.35pm).
On the injury front, RG Snyman is increasing his training load while Andrew Conway underwent a procedure on his knee.
