Billy Holland: Penned a new two-year deal

Munster have confirmed that flanker Billy Holland has penned a new two-year contract that will see him stay with the province until June 2016.

The 28-year-old made his Munster debut in 2007 against Llanelli Scarlets, and the academy graduate made his Heineken Cup debut against Northampton Saints in April 2010.

Holland has won 83 caps for Munster and has established himself as an important squad member, playing both second row and back row. Billy featured in every single PRO12 game last season and has played ten games so far this season as he continues with his consistent form.

Commenting on the news Holland said: "I'm delighted to have signed on for another two years.

"With such a young and exciting squad the future is bright here at Munster and I'm glad to remain involved.

"Having worked so hard to get where I am, I am keener than ever to push on and challenge for starting spots."
