He has started all 10 of Ireland’s 6 Nations fixtures since making his debut and scored a memorable hat-trick against Italy in the 2017 Championship.
Stander has won 18 caps for Ireland and has played a key role in a number of stand-out victories during his time to date in the green jersey including wins over New Zealand, South Africa, Australia and England.
He was selected for the 2017 British & Irish Lions squad featuring against the Blues, Crusaders, Highlanders, Chiefs, Hurricanes and New Zealand in the decisive third Test.
The 27-year-old made his debut for Munster against the Scarlets in November 2012 and has won105caps for his province scoring 32 tries.
CJ commented, “Following a lot of speculation and unfounded articles in the media, I am delighted to announce that I have signed a new three year contract with the IRFU through to 2021.
“My intention was always to stay with Munster and Ireland throughout this process having settled well in Limerick with my wife and within the Munster family.
“The coaching setup, ethos and work ethic within both camps is tremendous and I’m very excited at the prospect of playing my part in achieving great things through hard work and determination with both squads.
“My wife and I took a leap of faith and have made a lot of sacrifices to be here but it has all been worthwhile especially given how much of a privilege it is to wear the Munster and Ireland jerseys when given that responsibility. Ireland is a special country in which to live and play rugby and I’m fully aware of that.
“The Munster and Ireland fans have been fantastic to us since we arrived and my continued focus will be to do my best for them and both teams when called upon.”
