"I'm looking forward to getting back and playing a bit of rugby with Munster," he said.
"I'm ready to go straight away.
"We don't have much time as we are only a couple of weeks away from the Heineken Cup and its important for individuals to lay down markers to be in the team.
"We are lucky to have two very tough games ahead of the start of the Heineken Cup. They will get us battle hardened and that is the way you would want it."
After welcoming last season's beaten finalists to Thomond Park in the first game, Munster travel to Castres Olympique the following weekend for their second Pool 1 clash.
