WATCH: Interview with new Munster centre Chris Farrell

Munster Rugby introduce new centre Chris Farrell who is looking forward to the new season.

Chris Farrell began playing rugby with his local club Cloher Valley RFC in Tyrone and went on to make his senior Ulster debut just six months after finishing secondary school. His debut came against Leinster where he faced one of his heroes in Gordon D’Arcy.

During his three seasons at Ulster, Farrell was dogged by injury. This combined with huge array of talent at the centre position for Ulster meant Farrell made the decision to travel to Grenoble, France in search of regular game time.

The move was a brave one at such a young age, but it paid off. The 6’4 centre became a regular in the French side’s backline racking up an impressive ten tries in both the Top 14 and the European Challenge Cup.

The Ulster man knows new signing James Hart quite well after two years at Grenoble together as well as representing Ireland Under 20’s with JJ Hanrahan. Farrell has signed a two year contract with the province.
