Munster Rugby and the IRFU have confirmed that Joey Carbery, Liam Coombes, Chris Farrell, Jean Kleyn, Jack O’Sullivan, and Greencore Munster Rugby Academy player Alex Kendellen have all signed new contracts.
The six players have signed two-year contract extensions that will see them remain with the province until at least June 2024.
Since joining the squad in 2018 Ireland international Joey Carbery has made 30 appearances in red, scoring 264 points.
With four tries in 10 appearances, Liam Coombes has shown his quality and versatility since moving up to the senior squad from the Academy in 2020.
Ireland international centre Chris Farrell has scored eight tries in 52 Munster appearances since making his debut in September 2017.
Farrell has earned 15 international caps since moving to Munster from Grenoble and has been an ever-present for the province since returning from an abdomen injury last month.
Ireland international lock Jean Kleyn is closing in on a century of Munster appearances, scoring 12 tries in 97 games since joining from the DHL Stormers in 2016.
Back-row forward Jack O’Sullivan has scored two tries in 21 Munster appearances since making his debut in 2019.
In his second year of the academy, 20-year-old Alex Kendellen will advance to the senior ranks ahead of the 2022/23 season.
A product of PBC, the UCC back-row forward has made four appearances to date – including a Champions Cup debut against Castres – with his first start coming against Connacht in the United Rugby Championship last weekend.
