League Debut: v Treviso, Sept. 15, Irish Independent Park

European Debut: 

Previous Clubs: Canterbury Crusaders

International Honours: New Zealand U20

A former New Zealand U20s player the Christchurch born Bleyendaal captained the side to victory in the 2010 Junior World Championship in Argentina.

Playing at out-half or first centre, the 23-year-old made 20 Super Rugby appearances for the Crusaders and represented Canterbury in the ITM Cup on 31 occasions.

Tyler was set to join the province on a three-year contract on completion of his ITM Cup commitments with Canterbury in October 2014, subject to medical and fitness asssessments on arrival, but after sustaining a neck injury in the second round of the competition he underwent surgery to correct a disc lesion, keeping him side-lined for a lenghty period.

Bleyendaal arrived in the province in late January 2015 and passed a complete medical assessment. Returned to full training towards the end of the 2014/15 season and played for Munster 'A' against Ulster Ravens at Naas in April. 

Made his PRO12 debut for Munster as a replacement against Treviso at Irish Independent Park in September 2015 and made his first start the following week away to Ospreys.

A niggling quad issue kept the New Zealander sidelined for most of 2015/16, finishing out the season with just 5 appearances.
