Ireland's Conway extends Munster contract
TRANSFER NEWS: Ireland utility back Andrew Conway has signed a contract extension with Munster Rugby and the IRFU.
Currently, in his fifth season with the province, Conway has signed a two-year deal that will see him remain in red until at least June 2020.
The 26-year-old wing/fullback, who made his debut against Zebre in September 2013, is drawing closer to the century mark after making 91 appearances for the province.
With 28 tries to his name, he finished last year’s campaign as the province’s leading try scorer of the season with 11 tries.
He made his international debut in Ireland’s win over England at the Aviva Stadium in the 2017 Six Nations and has lined out in green on six occasions, scoring one try.
He was an impressive performer in the recent November Test series - scoring against South Africa in Ireland’s historic 38-3 win.
Conway missed Ireland’s opening two Six Nations games with France and Italy due to a knee injury.
Meanwhile, 22-year-old utility back Stephen Fitzgerald has also put pen to paper at Munster to extend his development contract for a further year.
The fullback and wing who is a graduate of the Munster Academy has made three appearances for the province, scoring one try on his debut when starting against Ospreys in September 2015.
