Munster out-half Johnny Holland is understood to be considering retirement as a recurring hamstring injury continues to trouble him.

According to the Sunday Independent, the 24-year-old, who finished last season as first choice out-half, is now mulling over his future.

Holland tore his hamstring off the bone in 2014 and has been troubled with it ever since. Last week, Munster Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus revealed that Holland had some decisions to make.

"Johnny went for a second scan and was seeing a specialist last week. He is going to go away and weigh up his options," he said.

"I had a good chat with him and we're going to think about what the best option is and make a decision next week based on that.

"Johnny has had time to think and weigh up all his different options. There are solutions, some are long term, some short, but this is what we need to think about."
