Munster Rugby - correction

A general view of Thomond Park
A general view of Thomond Park

In the Sunday Independent on May 19, 2019, an article written by Neil Francis falsely stated that Munster Rugby "sacked" its coaches, Felix Jones and Jerry Flannery.

The article also gave the impression that Munster Rugby had issued official press communiques that were false and misleading. We have been asked by Munster Rugby to clarify that Messrs Jones and Flannery had been offered new contracts by Munster Rugby but that both, for their own reasons, declined to accept the proposed contracts and that any press communiqués issued by Munster Rugby were consistent with this factual position. We are happy to correct the record.
