The IRFU and Munster are pleased to announce that Conor Murray has signed a new two year contract with the IRFU which will see him remain at Munster until at least June 2016.
Later on in the evening Matt Wialliams' A side dished out a 60-3 hammering to the Scots in Ravenhill, the close of the game bringing tries for local heroes, Andy Ward and Paddy Wallace (pictured).

In the senior international the visitors were dispatched with what coach Eddie O'Sullivan described as " a good solid performance" and with the result in from paris, the championship was thrown wide open again.
