Munster fly-half, Joey Carbery, has signed a new contract that will see him remain with the province until 2022.
Carbery joined the Southern province from Leinster last Summer and has added a two-year extension to his current two-year deal after settling in excellently at Thomond Park.
The 23-year old is the Champions Cup top-scorer so far this season with 68 points in the pool stages and he also leads the way in the Guinness PRO14’s Golden Boot standings with an 87% success rate off the tee.

Carbery famously made his Ireland debut during the 40-29 win over New Zealand in Chicago in November 2016. Since then, he has brought his international tally to 18 caps, including six appearances this season.
A further positive sees Johann van Graan boost his scrum-half options ahead of the World Cup period with Alby Mathewson remaining with the province until the end of November.
The former All Black was originally brought in as cover when Conor Murray was sidelined with a neck injury for a hefty period at the end of last season but a string of impressive performances saw him sign an extension in February that would see him remain with the province until the end of the season.
