Munster have revealed this morning that Andrew Conway and John Ryan have both agreed new deals with the province.

Conway has signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain with the province until June 2018 while Ryan has penned a three-year deal that will see him stay until June 2019.

Playing on the wing and at full-back Andrew Conway has made 42 appearances, scoring 11 tries, since joining the province at the start of the 2013/14 season.

The 24-year-old made his debut against Zebre in September 2013 at Stadio XXV Aprile and in October 2014 the Dublin-man made his European debut starting against Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell stadium.

The former Ireland Under-20's star made his Ireland Wolfhounds debut against England Saxons in Musgrave Park in January 2015 and has played in two successful Emerging Ireland campaigns, the 2014 Nations Cup and the 2015 Tbilisi Cup.

John Ryan, who plays both tight and loose-head prop, has made 62 appearances for Munster.

The Cork native progressed through the provincial age-grades before joining on a development contract at the start of the 2011/12 season.  Previous to his first professional contract, Ryan, while playing for UCC, represented the Ireland Club XV in 2010 and 2011.  

John went on to make his league debut against Cardiff Blues at the Cardiff City Stadium in September 2011 and made his European debut against Racing Metro in Thomond Park in January 2013.

The 27-year-old played in Emerging Ireland's Nations Cup winning campaign in Romania in June 2014.

Commenting on today's news Head Coach Anthony Foley said, "It is great to continue with the good news on the contract front and we are very happy to see Andrew and John commit their futures to Munster.

"Andrew has come in showing us what he is capable of and watching him develop within the squad has been great to see while in the pack John continues to excel in the front row, alternating between two difficult positions.

"Both players provide a level of versatility that is hugely beneficial to the squad.”
