Munster and the IRFU have announced that utility back Andrew Conway and prop John Ryan have signed contract extensions 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 from rivals Leinster at the start of the 2013/14 season.

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.

Commenting on the new deals, 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.

"Both players provide a level of versatility that is hugely beneficial to the squad."
