Munster stalwart announces retirement

Munster stalwart Billy Holland has announced his retirement from rugby at the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

The 35 year-old has spent a very impressive 14 years at Munster, notching up a total of 241 appearances in the process. He has one cap for Ireland.

"I have always been determined to finish my career whilst still playing well and adding value to the jersey each time I get to put it on," Holland said.

"To be in a position to call time on such a fantastic experience, on my own terms, is one I am extremely grateful for.

"I believe the time is right for me, my family and for Munster for me to hang up my boots."

Munster head coach Johann van Graan was full of praise for Holland’s contribution to the club:

"Billy will go down as a Munster legend in the history of the club, and rightly so,” he said.

"We all know the incredible character he is and how hard he works behind the scenes, always getting the job done.

"He has given his all to the jersey and all I can do is thank him for his service and commitment to Munster Rugby."
