Murray agrees new IRFU contract


Conor Murray has agreed a new contract extension which will tie him to Munster until at least the end of June 2022.

Currently sidelined through injury, Murray made his Munster debut against Connacht in 2010 and has so far represented the province on 116 occasions, scoring 142 points.

He won the first of his 67 Ireland caps against France in August 2011, winning the Six Nations in 2014 and 2015 as well as featuring in every game of the 2018 Grand Slam campaign.

The new contract, which was signed in early September, will see Murray play his rugby in Ireland for the next three years and he is hoping to enjoy further success at provincial and international level.

“I am delighted to have signed on with the IRFU until at least 2022. Over the past few seasons I’ve enjoyed great days in the green of Ireland and the red of my home province Munster. I love playing here and look forward to making more life long memories in the next few years,” Murray said.

Commenting on the new contract, David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, said: “Conor is a genuinely world class player and he has illustrated this through the consistent quality of the performances he delivers for both Ireland and Munster.

"He has played a central role in driving the success that has been achieved at national level and we are delighted that he will continue to play his rugby in Ireland for at least the next three seasons.”

Munster travel to Sandy Park to face Exeter Chiefs in the Heineken Champions Cup on Saturday, 13 October live on BT Sport 1 on the eir sport pack [kick-off 3.15pm]. Subscribe here
