Casey Laulala to leave Munster at the end of the season

CASEY LAULALA WILL leave Munster when his contract expires at the end of the season.

The former All Black has attracted interest from several European clubs, including Bernard Jackman’s Grenoble, and Munster say they are “unable to match” the terms on offer.

“We understand Casey’s reasons for leaving at the end of the season and are disappointed to see him go,” head coach Rob Penney said.

I’m sure he will continue to commit himself to the goals we set out at the beginning of the season and will contribute to Munster’s campaign.

Laulala, who joined in the summer of 2012 and has won 37 caps with the province, said: “I have loved my time with Munster and there’s a lot of rugby still to be played.

“I want to achieve success with these guys and hope to continue to contribute in any way I can.”

Earlier today, Munster confirmed that Irish international second-row Donnacha Ryan has agreed a new contract until 2017.
