CHIEF EXECUTIVE WELCOME

Dear Supporter,

I am delighted to welcome you to our exclusive virtual Munster Rugby event, a unique occasion during extraordinary

times.

Whilst we have not had supporters in our stadia since February 2020, we are very grateful to have our Munster

community gather online for an evening of celebration, chat, and good company.

We realise how fortunate and unique we are to have such passionate and fervent supporters all over the world. We

want to do all we can to ensure that Munster Rugby is visible and present in the lives of our supporters, irrespective

of where they are based, and this event allows us to ‘meet’ you in the safest and easiest way possible.

Tonight’s programme will outline some of the highlights from our season, one that saw us reach the Guinness

PRO14 Final and the last 16 of the Champions Cup. While we are all bitterly disappointed to come away without

silverware, we recognise the performances and hard work that went into producing 19 victories in 24 games.

There are no guarantees in sport, but we believe we have the building blocks in place to be successful. Our

excellent coach, Johann van Graan, sets the standard and, like him, everyone at the club is driven by the ambition

to be the best and to add our own winning chapter to the Munster Rugby story.

I want to thank our Partners, Patrons, 10-Year Ticket Holders, Global Dinner attendees and Supporters Club members

for your continued support. Your support is vital, makes this club what it is, and you are all important members of

the Munster Rugby family.

We look forward to welcoming you home next season when we can open Musgrave Park and Thomond Park to

you once again.

I hope that you all have a lovely evening.

Stand Up and Fight.

Ian Flanagan

BIOGRAPHY

From Patrickswell, Co Limerick, Conor

came through the Munster Rugby

Academy and his rise has been meteoric.

He completed his three years with the

academy at the end of season 10/11 and

then secured a senior contract.

While in the Academy Conor made his

Munster senior debut as a replacement

against the Sale Sharks in the 2009 preseason

game in Musgrave Park.

Then his competitive debut included

a very brief appearance as a blood

replacement in Galway in the Magners

League. His second outing in the Munster

shirt was as a 78th minute replacement

against the touring Australians in

November 2010.

A year later he had established himself

as first choice scrum half for Munster

and for Ireland starting for the national

side in the World Cup in New Zealand.

Since then he has become the regular

starter in the Ireland number 9 shirt.

Murray’s 2012/13 season ended with a

Lions squad inclusion and he featured

in seven of the touring games including

two of the test games.

Made an impressive start to the 2013/14

campaign but sustained medial ligament

damage to his right knee against

Perpignan in December, an injury that will

keep him out of action for approximately

six weeks.

In the same month, Murray signed a new

two-year contract extension to keep him

at the province until at least June 2016.

Returned to the side to earn his 50th

Munster cap in the Heineken Cup win

against Gloucester at Kingsholm in

January 2014.

Started all five games in Ireland’s

successful 2014 Six Nations

campaign. Was one of the side’s

stand-out performers throughout the

Championship brilliantly setting up

Andrew Trimble for a vital try in the win

against France in Paris.

Named Munster Rugby Player of the

Year at the 2014 Munster Rugby Awards

Included in the Ireland squad for summer

tour to Argentina, 2014.

Featured for Ireland in the Guinness

Series victories over South Africa and

Australia in November 2014

Started every game for Ireland in the

successful defence of their 6 Nations

title in 2015 and was later nominated for

the IRUPA Player’s Player of the Year,

losing out to his Munster colleague Paul

O’Connell.

Featured in every game for Ireland at

the 2015 Rugby World Cup, also starting

every game of the 2016 RBS 6 Nations.

Signed a three-year contract in January

which will see him remain at Munster

through to the end of Rugby World Cup

2019.

Featured in Ireland’s first ever win over

the Springboks on South African soil in

June 2016.

Gave a stellar try-scoring performance in

Ireland’s first ever win over the All Blacks

at Soldier Field, Chicago in November

2016.

Made his 100th Munster appearance

in the province’s loss to Scarlets in the

2017 PRO12 final at the Aviva Stadium.

Won selection on his second British and

Irish Lions tour, starting all three Tests

as the tourists drew the Series against

the All Blacks. In scoring a try in the

second Test, Murray became the first

international player in history to score

four tries against the All Blacks - three

for Ireland and one for the Lions.

Made 16 appearances for Munster in the

2017/18 campaign scoring 41 points.

Murray played a key role in Ireland’s

Grand Slam-winning 6 Nations campaign

and Summer Series win over Australia.

Missed the opening months of the

2018/19 season with a neck injury before

returning against Zebre in November

2018.

Settled back into the side immediately

and was included in the Ireland squad

for the 2019 6 Nations.

Murray was included in the Ireland

Rugby World Cup squad that travelled

to Japan in 2019 and featured in four

games.

take the ball and move on to the next phase of play.’”
