Cronin and Sherry commit to Reds


Munster have announced that both prop James Cronin and hooker Mike Sherry have committed their futures to the province.

Cronin had been linked with a move to England but he has signed a new three-year deal to remain at Thomond Park, while Sherry has agreed a two-year deal with the Reds.

A product of the Munster clubs, Cronin signed his first senior contract with Munster in 2013 and has made 54 appearances for the province, while he was called up to Ireland for the summer tour to Argentina in June 2014. He won his first two Ireland caps on the tour and was part of the Emerging Ireland squad that won the 2015 Tblisi Cup in Georgia.

Sherry, meanwhile, has 82 appearances for Munster but his time with the province has been blighted by injury - he was sidelined for 21 months with knee and shoulder problems - but he has agreed a deal that will see him remain with the province for another two years.

"We are delighted with the latest news, and as a group are hugely lifted with three of our home-grown players committing their futures to the province," head coach Anthony Foley commented.

"James and Mike have shown what they are capable of time and time again and they both have a massive part to play in this squad's progression.

"Both are products of our under-age set up at club and school level respectively and they represent the hard work that is being done at grassroots and academy level each week."
