The 25-year-old has been out of action with a long-term ankle injury.

Carbery has been named as a replacement for Munster's Guinness PRO14 clash against Cardiff tomorrow night.

The action gets underway at 8pm in the Welsh capital.

Last month, Carbery spoke to the Munster website about his hopes for a return to action.
