Andrew Conway became the 14th player in the current Munster squad to play 100 games for the province when he lined out against Leinster at the weekend.

The Dubliner moved south for the 2013/'14 season and since then has scored 32 tries for Munster, the most notable coming last year in the Champions Cup quarter-final win over Toulon.

The 27-year-old scored 11 tries last season to top the list of Munster scorers and his displays have won him seven Irish caps.

Billy Holland tops the most appearances in the current squad and needs just eight more games to join an elite group who have amassed 200 caps for Munster.

Ian Keatley is the most capped back with 178 games for the province.

Donncha O'Callaghan has the most Munster appearances on 263, while Ronan O'Gara is top scorer on 2,571 points, with Simon Zebo top try scorer on 60.

The current Munster players to hit the 100 mark are: Billy Holland (192), Ian Keatley (178), Stephen Archer (168), Tommy O'Donnell (161), Dave Kilcoyne (160), Duncan Williams (158), Keith Earls (154), John Ryan (125), CJ Stander (117), Conor Murray (116), Peter O'Mahony (111), James Cronin (107), Mike Sherry (105) and Andrew Conway.
