NAME: Joey Carbery

DOB: 01/11/1995

POSITION: Out-half

DEBUT: v Cheetahs, 1 Sep 2018

After a torrid two seasons of injury disruption, Carbery showed steady progression during the 2021/22 campaign.

Playing 11 games for Munster, he looked unsettled early in the season before gaining in confidence, with his standout performance coming in the Champions Cup last 16 second leg against Exeter at Thomond Park.

A broken arm in December disrupted his season slightly, but he still kicked 103 points for the province, while also scoring a try, and reestablished himself as the heir to Johnny Sexton's international shirt, playing all 11 games for Ireland in the last 12 months.
