Earls has 154 caps with Munster, scoring 47 tries since his debut against Ospreys in 2007. He was part of the illustrious team who won the Heineken Cup in 2008 and enjoyed further success in the Magners League in 2011.
Speaking on the new deal, the 31-year-old said he couldn’t imagine himself playing anywhere else.
“It would be hard to see me playing anywhere else! I’m delighted to have re-signed for a further two years. My family and I are thrilled and I’m looking forward to the future with Munster and Ireland.”
The news follows plenty of contract extensions for Munster players including a new three-year deal for Conor Murray.
