Of the 23 appearances he made for Munster in 2011/12 season, 18 were as starting tight-head including all seven Heineken Cup games.

Similarly in 2012/13, Botha was the starting tight-head in all eight of Munster's Heineken Cup games and signed a two-year contract extension at the end of the 2012/13 season.
