MUNSTER PAIR DENIS Hurley and Johne Murphy have signed contract extensions with the province, it has been announced this evening.

Versatile Hurley, who has played as winger full-back and centre, has made 130 appearances for Munster since coming through their academy.

Fellow 29-year-old Murphy, originally from Kildare, arrived from Leicester Tigers in 2010 and has gone onto play 79 times – scoring 12 tries along the way.

Munster, who were knocked out of the Heineken Cup by Toulon on Sunday, also revealed that prop Martin Kelly has agreed to join from Dublin University on a one-year development deal.

Ian Nagle, meanwhile, has turned down an offer to remain with the club and will leave at the end of the season. The 25-year-old is currently on loan at the Newcastle Falcons.
