Murray Signs One-Year Munster Contract Extension

Conor Murray, the Ireland scrum-half, has signed a one-year contract extension with Munster. Murray has made 185 appearances for Munster since making his debut in 2010. He was a second-half replacement in four of Ireland’s Six Nations games this year, with Jamison Gibson-Park now the first-choice number nine. Despite this, Murray helped Ireland clinch the Six Nations title last month and has earned 116 caps for his country. The scrum-half has also been in three British and Irish Lions touring squads.

In addition to Murray’s extension, Munster has confirmed new deals for backrowers Jack Daly and Brian Gleeson. Daly has signed a one-year contract extension, while Gleeson has moved up from the Irish province’s academy after agreeing to a two-year deal. Gleeson has made nine Munster appearances this season, and Daly has played twice for the province this term following his return from injury.

Meanwhile, Murray’s Ireland international colleague Peter O’Mahony is also considering a new Munster contract, with head coach Graham Rowntree stating over the weekend that news on the back row’s future is imminent.
