All Blacks scrumhalf Alby Mathewson has signed a contract extension with Munster according to our sources, that will see him remain at the southern province until at least April.
The New Zealander signed for Munster on a four-month deal back in August as cover for Conor Murray, meaning he was originally set to be done with the province come the end of December.
But with Murray still not back, and James Hart and Neil Cronin struggling with injuries in recent weeks, it appears the IRFU have granted an extension to Mathewson’s contract.
The deal will mean Munster will have cover for Murray when he’s on Ireland duty for the Six Nations, and will allow Munster to mange his workload a lot better, with an experienced international in Mathewson in the squad ready to step up.
