The below statement has been issued by Munster Rugby and Chris Farrell.

Munster Rugby and Chris Farrell have agreed that, with immediate effect, he will be stepping back from his involvement with the Munster squad whilst legal proceedings in France, concerning his alleged involvement as a witness to an alleged crime in 2017, are ongoing.

As this is an active legal matter before the French courts, we have no further comment.
