Joey Carbery Set To Sign For Munster On Two-Year Deal


Joey Carbery looks to have made a decision on his future, with the Ireland international set to leave Leinster and sign a two-year contract with rivals Munster.

Rúaidhrí O’Connor in The Irish Independent is reporting a deal is done for Carbery to make the move down south, with an official announcement set to be made in the coming days.

Carbery met with Munster head coach Johann van Graan last week to discuss a potential move, with a deal to move to Ulster said to be off the cards at that stage, with the young outhalf seemingly not interested in a move north.

Instead he now looks set to link up with Conor Murray in what could be a formidable half-back partnership for the men in red.

It’s unclear how the arrival of Carbery affects the futures of Ian Keatley, JJ Hanrahan, Tyler Bleyendaal and Bill Johnston, but you would imagine one of them will move on, potentially to Ulster.

Joe Schmidt must be delighted.
