        From that list I would guess that we will lose:
        McCabe, O'Byrne, BJ, Coghlan, Sheridan, Hurley, Van Den Heever.

        Hurley would be a tough decision, but with Scannel and Bohane, we are covered.
        Van den Heever seems to be out of favour
        Coghlan was a waste of a signing, in my opinion.
        Sheridan's time is up with us.

        Conway and Zebo are the two outstanding with regards to contracts.

        Overall, we need to cut the squad by 2 or 3 members, and increase the quality with that money.

          Not sure I would agree on Coghlan, Bitter.

            Munster Rugby and the IRFU are pleased to confirm 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 fullback 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 U20s star made his Ireland Wolfhounds debut against England Saxons in Irish Independent 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.
            "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

            Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

            Anthony Foley, May 2016. Axel RIP

                Yeah, two good solid performers. Conway has made great strides this year now he's been given a chance. I think both of them have lots of potential

                  Murray???

                  There will be a few moving on. I think O'Byrne has what it takes, but a bit crowded here. He's not getting games but is well up to P12 level. Hurley will get a renewal, he's so Munster he'd play for free. GvdH has shown flashes, but seeing him playing A rugby with Conway injured makes you wonder alright.

                  Casey, Holland, Murray, earls, Zebo. would be the ones I'd regard as important. They rest will not be significant loses.

                              Thats great news, he's improved massively in recent seasons, not hugely valued outside our bubble but he rarely makes mistakes and is a good leadership source. A steady hand at many times.


                              Good man Billy
