Bulls centre to join Munster
TRANSFER NEWS: Munster head coach Johann van Graan has returned to his native South Africa to make his latest signing.
According to reports Dries Swanepoel will join the club from the Bulls, after he failed to make their Super Rugby squad for the 2018 season.
The 25-year-old, who made his Super Rugby debut in 2016, was a regular feature in the Currie Cup last season.
He won a bronze medal at the 2013 Junior World Championship, in a backline which featured Handre Pollard.
Munster have been hit by injuries at centre with Chris Farrell out for the rest of the season, after picking up an ACL injury while training with Ireland during the Six Nations. Jaco Taute is also a long-term absentee with a knee injury.
Meanwhile, Munster captain Peter O’Mahony believes that Munster will have to up their game if they’re to beat Toulon in the Champions Cup quarter-finals.
"We've got to have the best performance of the season so far if we're going to be in with a shot." O'Mahoney said.
