Gerhard joined Munster in November 2013 (for two years) after completing his time with Western Province as they advanced to the Currie Cup Final in October.

Van den Heever made his Super Rugby debut with the Bulls at the age of just 20 and enjoyed a highly successful two years there, winning the Super Rugby competition in 2009.

He made the move to the Stormers in 2011 and has played provincial rugby for the Blue Bulls and Western Province, winning the Currie Cup with both sides.

In making the move to Munster Gerhard joins his former Blue Bulls team-mate CJ Stander.

It wasn't the best of starts for the young South African as he sustained a broken bone in his right hand when making his Munster debut against Newport Gwent Dragons.

Scored two tries on his first appearance for Munster A - including an 80th minute effort that secured the bonus-point - in the 30-15 win against Nottingham at the start of 2014. 

Followed that up a week later with another try away to Stirling before scoring his first try for the senior side against Cardiff Blues in February 2014. Scored his second try for Munster against Scarlets at the start of March. 

Made his Heineken Cup debut v Toulouse, April 2014.

Played for a Munster 7’s side at the Limerick World Club 7s Festival in Thomond Park, August 2014.  Sustaining a knee injury at the tournament, he will miss the opening weeks of the season.
 

Made his first European start against Clermont Auvergne at Thomond Park in December.
