Foley set for Reds extension


Munster head coach Anthony Foley is in talks over a one-year contract extension.

Foley's initial two-year contract is due to expire at the end of the current season but there is an option of a third year which looks likely to be activated as both parties are keen to extend his tenure.

The former Heineken Cup-winning captain has been at the helm since taking over from Rob Penney in the summer of 2014, although he has endured a difficult start to his management career with Munster failing to qualify for the knockout stages of the inaugural Champions Cup last season, while they head into Sunday's game against Leicester looking for a first win in four matches.

It has been reported that negotiations have started but a deal is unlikely to be reached before Christmas as Foley is focused on preparing his side for this weekend's match.
