NEWS: Ireland back Simon Zebo will be out for around five weeks due to a fractured rib, his club Munster announced on Thursday.

The 30-year-old wing, who can also play at fullback, sustained the injury during last Saturday's 23-13 Pro12 win away to the Scarlets.

Zebo now faces a race against time to be fit for Munster's opening European Champions Cup fixture against Racing 92 on October 16.

Munster also revealed that hooker Kevin O'Byrne faces three months out with an elbow injury.
