Munster Rugby can confirm that Arno Botha will depart for South Africa’s Blue Bulls next month after spending two years at the province.

The powerful back-row forward scored eight tries in 43 appearances and is Munster’s top try-scorer this campaign.

Munster head Coach Johann van Graan said: “Arno has been a great addition to the Munster squad and will be missed. I’ve no doubt the Bulls are delighted to see him return to his home province as he is a quality signing. We wish Arno all the best for the future and thank him for his time in red.”

Botha, an explosive ball carrier who plays flanker and number eight, played his entire professional career with the Blue Bulls before moving to London Irish in January 2018.

He joined Munster ahead of the 2018/19 season and spent two successful years here, featuring in 43 of Munster’s 50 games in that time.

He was named in the Guinness PRO14’s top 10 players for this season, with the list compiled by Opta.

You can watch all six of his tries this season below.
