Former All Blacks winger Doug Howlett has agreed a new deal with Munster.
Howlett, who scored 49 tries in 62 internationals for New Zealand, has extended his contract with the Irish Province until the end of the 2012/13 season.
The 33-year-old joined Munster mid way through the 2007/08 season, making his debut in the Heineken Cup against Clermont Auvergne in January 2008. He has since gone on to score 32 tries in a hugely successful stint in Ireland, which has included a Heineken Cup triumph in 2008 and a Magners League title in 2009.
Howlett said: "I'm obviously delighted to have agreed terms. My family and I are very happy here in Munster. It's home to us and we're very much looking forward to remaining here."
