Conor Murray Explains The Story Behind Munster's Dressing Room Celebration

It was very much a celebratory mood at Thomond Park yesterday as Munster romped to a home quarter-final, beating Castres 48-3. After the game admiration was forthcoming for Keith Earls, their fans were cursing on Sky Sports and Duncan Casey was singing topless in the changing room.

The dressing room camera captured footage of a shirtless Casey and his Munster team-mates singing Munster's 'stand up and fight' post their European Cup success.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Conor Murray revealed that Casey is set to leave Munster.

Duncan Casey, you might've seen it there, he did a little dance. It just shows how tight we are as a group. It's quite emotional that he's moving on to pastures new.

Casey is an immensely popular figure within the Munster dressing room and won the Munster Rugby Young Player of the Year award in 2015. However, the Corkman has endured a rotten spell of injuries recently. That has seen him drop from first choice hooker to fourth behind Niall Scannell, Rhys Marshall and Kevin O'Byrne.

Away from rugby Casey sat law exams and has played for Munster A in the B&I Cup. He does have a year remaining on his contract and it has yet to be announced where his future lies.
