Munster announced three new contract extensions as Jean Kleyn is set to make his 100th appearance for the men in red this Saturday

Limerick native Dan Goggin, John Hodnett and James French, who are all products of the Greencore Munster Rugby Academy, have signed new contracts at Munster.

27-year-old Dan Goggin has signed a two-year contract to keep him at Munster until at least June 2024.

The centre, who was named Munster Rugby Young Player of the Year in 2019, is a product of St Munchin’s and Young Munster.

Prop James French has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Munster until at least June 2024.

Saturdays away trip to Parma will hopefully be a day to remember for Munster lock Jean Kleyn as the day marks his 100th appearance in the red jersey.

Now in his sixth season at Munster, the 28-year-old has been a fantastic addition to the squad and recently signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain with the province until at least June 2024.
