He'll probably be upgraded when he moves to Munster.

Bowe not to be renewed. Possibly one of Payne or Kearney too.
Trimble still up in the air this year.
Payne Kearney and Trimble will all be 32 at the end of their current contracts.
Furlong is the poster child for a central contract
Ringrose worth one but Bundee Aki shaped elephant rearing its head again
Bowe is definitely not getting another one
Trimble would be a surprise, though his last one was a big surprise at the time, age and likelihood of leaving seriously against him
Depending on pecking order etc Payne and or RK might get 1 year deals to get them to RWC, Best probably assumed hes not leaving (especially if hes still captain as unlikely as that is)
