Munster want to keep Warwick

Munster have issued a hands-off warning to Guinness Premiership club London Irish, who have claimed to have signed Paul Warwick on a three-year deal starting in the summer.

“He is a Munster player. He remains a Munster player for the next two seasons. It is that simple,” said Munster’s communications manager Pat Geraghty.

This is likely to create bad blood between the European Champions and the closest thing to an Irish club abroad as Warwick has been one of the province’s best players this season moving seamlessly between full-back and out-half as cover for Ronan O’Gara.

The former Australian Sevens exponent has added to his game since moving to Connacht four years ago and on to Munster at the beginning of the 2007-2008 season.
