GARRYOWEN FC, Munster and Ireland scrum-half Conor Murray (pictured during this days with Garryowen) has agreed a new, wholly funded by the IRFU, contract extension which will see him play his rugby in Ireland up to at least the end of June 2022.
The press release makes no mention of the reasons for his absence from rugby over the past months.
Since making his international debut against France in August 2011, Conor has won 67 caps for Ireland. He started every game of the 2014 and 2015 6 Nations Championship successes as well wearing the No.9 jersey in every game of the 2018 Grand Slam campaign.
He has represented Ireland at two Rugby World Cups, playing in both the 2011 and 2015 tournaments. A two time British and Irish Lions tourist, Conor has featured in five Test matches for the Lions including starting all three Tests against New Zealand in 2017.
Conor made his Munster debut against Connacht in 2010 and has represented the province on 116 occasions scoring 142 points and winning a Celtic League title in 2011.
David Nucifora, IRFU Performance Director, commented, “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.”
