Munster Complete Their Squad

Munster have completed their squad for the coming season with the news that they’ve signed former SA Schools and U20 wing forward CJ Stander

In this his first season playing Super 15 rugby, the 22 year old has played 13 times and scored four tries for the Bulls who lie 5th in the overall table after finishing second in the South African Super 15 Conference.

A former captain of South Africa Schools and U20s, Stander will join Munster on a two year contract – subject to being granted a work permit and passing the requisite fitness test – once his commitment to the Bulls in the Super 15 and Currie Cup has ended,

The South African will be vying for a place in the starting side with Barry O'Mahony the former Dolphin now Clontarf flanker who has been given a Development contract. O'Mahony played in both Ireland Club internationals last season and scored a crucial try in the British & Irish Cup semi-final victory over Leinster

It was also confirmed that Paul McCarthy has extended his contract as Scrum Coach, news that means Munster have now also completed their coaching team for the coming season.
