Munster Rugby has confirmed that Ireland fly-half Joey Carberry has signed a new deal that will keep him with the province at least until 2022.

Carberry made his professional rugby debut with Leinster in 2016 before moving to Thomond Park in 2018 and has been prolific for the club this season scoring 143 points from 13 games.

The 23-year-old's Test debut came during Ireland's famous win over New Zealand in Chicago in 2016 and overall has played 18 Tests for the national side though his participation in the recently concluded Six Nations tournament was cut short by a hamstring injury.

Munster will be desperately hoping for Carberry to be fit with a Champions Cup quarter-final against Glasgow Warriors scheduled this Saturday.

"Joey will be reintegrated back into training, then we'll see how he goes for the week," head coach Johann van Graan told RTÉ Sport on Monday.

"But we're very hopeful that he'll play. He wants to be ready and all indications are that he'll be fine."
