Munster's young backrow forward Eoghan Grace will play this season's rugby with English Premiership side Exeter Chiefs.
The 22 year old Grace has been released from his Munster contract (academy) to pursue a season's rugby with the newly promoted English side.
Eoghan leaves with Munster's best wishes on a one year deal that management believe will help in the development of his professional rugby career.
Speaking about the move Munster coach Tony McGahan said "Eoghan is undoubtedly a player of immense potential as evidenced at AIL and British & Irish Cup level last season. However we believe it to be in his best interests at this stage of his development to pursue this offer from Exeter Chiefs, where the prospect of regular rugby at premiership level will prove hugely beneficial."
