Ceaseless speculation over No.10 is usually the preserve of Fleet Street's political classes, rather than Irish rugby.

It appears, however, that the speculation over Joey Carbery's future is finally coming to an end. According to Ruadihri O'Connor of the Irish IndependentCarbery is on his way to Munster.

The paper report that Carbery is set to agree a two-year deal with Munster, following a meeting with Munster coach Johann Van Graan. The full Indo report is available here.

Joe Schmidt is eager to give Carbery more game time at out-half ahead of the 2019 World Cup, and following a season in which he has been used as a reserve full-back at Leinster, he has been persuaded to move.

The saga kicked off weeks ago, ahead of the Champions Cup semi-final with Scarlets. After the game, the Sunday Times reported that Leinster had been visited by Schmidt and David Nucifora and told to decide which of Carbery and Ross Byrne would leave to earn more game time with a rival province.

While it was expected that Carbery would join Ulster following the revoking of Paddy Jackson's contract, it's understood that he has turned down that opportunity and will now join Munster.

Carbery is part of the Irish squad that flies out to Australia later today in search of a first series win in the Southern Hemisphere since the 1970s.
