Stander joined Munster in October 2012 on a two year contract, making the move from Super 15 side the Blue Bulls in South Africa. 

The back-row forward has captained the Blue Bulls at U19 and U21 level as well as South Africa at School and U20s level.

He scored two tries on his first start against Glasgow Warriors at Thomond Park in December 2012 and repeated the feat at the start of the 2013/14 season with a double against Zebre in Italy.

Made his Heineken Cup debut against Edinburgh in Murrayfield in October 2013 and signed a two year contract extension in January that will see him remain with the province until at least June 2016. 

Named man of the match in the game against Zebre at Musgrave Park in February 2014.

A blistering start to Season 14/15 saw him score three tries in the opening two games against Edinburgh and Benetton Treviso, and the backrow powerhouse went on to pick up 4 man of the match awards before sustaining a knee injury against Saracens at the Allianz Park in January.

Continued where he left off on his return from injury, going on to win a total of seven man of the match awards in 2014/15.

Was named the 2015 Munster Rugby Player of the Year in April.
