Hurley confirms Munster exit


Denis Hurley has confirmed that he has played his last game for Munster.

A product of the Munster Academy, Hurley made his first competitive start for the province against Llanelli Scarlets in May 2006 and went on to make 166 appearances for the Reds.

Following a season that that saw him struggle with injury, the 31-year-old has confirmed that he will not be in a Munster jersey next year.

He announced the news on Instagram alongside a picture of himself carrying his baby daughter out onto the pitch at Thomond Park after Munster's win over Scarlets on Saturday.

"One last walk out," Hurley wrote. "My wife nabbed this pic after the end of season game on Saturday. I had our baby girl in my arms to get a pic together on the pitch.

"A moment she will never remember but both of us will remember for many reasons.

"All the memories this pitch has given us over the years & it culminated in a quiet moment for us to savour as a family.

Happy to have played out my dreams here but now a new challenge awaits and we're excited about what may lie ahead."
