Zebo commits to Munster

New two-year deal for winger

Simon Zebo has signed a new two-year deal which will keep him at Munster until 2018.

The Irish international winger had been heavily linked with a move abroad at the end of the season, but he has opted to follow in the footsteps of team-mates Conor Murray and Keith Earls by signing a new deal.

Zebo has made 95 appearances for Munster and has 21 Ireland caps.

The news is sure to provide a welcome boost to Munster coach Anthony Foley as his side look to get their season back on track following their elimination from the Champions Cup in the pool stages.

They dug out a hard-fought 16-14 win over a stubborn Zebre side in Parma at the weekend to get themselves back into contention for the PRO12.

"It's great to have even more good news on the contract front today," Foley said.

"Simon's record speaks for itself and keeping a player with his experience and versatility is key to our plans going forward so we are delighted that he has committed his future to Munster."
