Stander signs new Munster contract


CJ Stander has committed his immediate future to Munster by signing a new two-year contract extension that will see him remain him with the province until June 2018.

Stander joined Munster in October 2012 and has developed into a key member of the squad, making 69 appearances and scoring 22 tries. His importance was underlined when he became the first overseas player to be named Munster Rugby Player of the Year in April.

He has captained the side in the absence of Peter O'Mahony and is tipped to challenge Jamie Heaslip for a place in the Ireland starting Xv in the coming seasons.

“I am delighted to be committing my future to Munster Rugby. This is very much home for me and it is a huge honour to represent the red jersey every week. I look forward to continuing my journey with the team and supporters," Stander said of his new contract.

Head coach Anthony Foley has welcomed the news, stating: “Getting this news at this stage of the seasons is a great boost for the squad.

"In securing the services of CJ for a further two years we are holding on to a key player within our group, one that gives everything to the jersey each week. At such a young age he has shown his leadership qualities on and off the field and we know there is still more to come so we look forward to working with CJ in to the future.”
