Felix Jones is back in contention for selection for Munster’s upcoming RaboDirect Pro12 games after his return from serious injury.

The 23-year old has spent six months on the sidelines following ankle ligament damage to his right foot which he sustained during an Irish World Cup warm-up game with France at the Aviva Stadium.

The injury shattered the young full-back’s chances of going to the World Cup and he is yet to make an appearance for Munster this season.

However, following his appearance for Shannon in their 20-3 defeat to Young Munster, the Dubliner will be hoping for inclusion in the Munster squad for their clash with Benetton Treviso on February 18.

The ex-Leinster youth collected his three Ireland caps after consistent performances for Munster last season as he ousted Paul Warwick from the number 15 shirt.

Jones’ last appearance for Munster was in their Grand Final victory over Leinster last May and he will be hoping to continue his development after a frustrating period.
