Sherry made his first Heineken Cup start in the quarter-final against Ulster on 8 April 2012.[7] He agreed a contract extension with Munster in January 2013.[8] Sherry became one of Munster's youngest ever captains on 16 February 2013, when he led the side out in their Pro 12 match against Scarlets.[9][10] Sherry was ruled out for six months in December 2013, after rupturing a cruciate ligament in his knee.[11] Sherry also had a shoulder operation in January 2014 and, following a second shoulder operation in August 2014, Sherry was ruled out for four to five months.[12] Sherry made his return from the injury on 5 September 2015.[13] He scored two tries in Munster's 35-27 win against Cardiff Blues on 17 October 2015.[14] He started the opening pool game of the 2015–16 European Rugby Champions Cup against Treviso on 14 November 2015.[15] In January 2016, Sherry signed a two-year contract extension with Munster, which will see him remain with the province until at least June 2018.[16] In August 2016, Sherry underwent a surgical procedure on his back which ruled him out for 3-4 months.[17]
