Kleyn extends stay with Munster

WORLD Cup winner with South Africa Jean Kleyn has singed a two-year contract extension with Munster.

Named Munster Player of the Year for 2022/23, Kleyn made his first appearance of the campaign against Leinster at the weekend.

He has played almost 140 times for the club since making his debut against Scarlets in 2016.

Last year was a stand out campaign as he made 24 starts, more than anyone else in the squad, including 19 in-a-row to finish the season as Munster clinched the URC title.

John Hodnett has also had his contract extented by two years, while injury troubled Liam Coombes has committed for another season.
