Munster sign up quartet to new deals
Sammy Arnold, Darren O’shea, Conor Oliver, and Dan Goggin have inked twoyear contracts with Munster. Arnold, who joined the province at the start of the 201617 season, endured several injury setbacks in his first year. However, the 21-yearold centre bounced back to impress on recent outings, making six starts in seven games, scoring three tries. Former academy player O’shea returned to the province for the 2016-17 season after completing two seasons with Worcester Warriors. The 25-year-old lock has since made 21 appearances, scoring two tries. Flanker Oliver will advance from a development to a full contract next season. The 22-year-old Academy Player of the Year in 2017 has 17 caps. Goggin will also advance to a full contract at the end of this season. The centre’s progression was halted earlier this season when he sustained a knee injury against Treviso in the opening round of PRO14. The 23-year-old, who has made 15 Munster appearances, recently completed his rehabilitation to feature for Munster A in round six of the British & Irish Cup.
