Hot prospect Zebo pens three-year Munster deal

IRELAND international Simon Zebo has signed a three-year contract extension to keep him at Munster to the end of the season 2015/2016.

Twenty-two-year-old Zebo is one of the hottest prospects in Irish rugby, making an impressive impact for club and country this season.

Number eight James Coughlan, hooker Mike Sherry, lock Dave Foley and back row Paddy Butler are the others who have committed their immediate future to Munster, while Sean Dougall, in his first season with Munster, has also agreed a two-year extension.

Out-half JJ Hanrahan, 20, back rower Dave O'Callaghan, 22, and wing Luke O'Dea, 22, have moved onto full contracts that will see them stay to the end of season 2014/2015.
