Reports Munster Are Poised To Sign Springbok World Cup Duo

There was huge news on the signings front for Munster fans today as the The Irish Times reports that Munster have secured the services of Springbok centre Damian de Allende.

Meanwhile, The Irish Independent also ran the De Allende’s signing but also claim that van Graan has added RG Snyman to their ranks.

The signings would be possible as Munster will have room to manoeuvre when it comes to Non Ireland Eligible players with Alby Mathewson departing in November and Arno Botha’s contract up at the end of the current campaign.

De Allende follows in the footsteps of powerful South African centres that have signed with the province such as John De Villiers and Trevor Halstead.

The 27 year old was an instrumental part of South Africa’s World Cup success, scoring a huge try against Wales and turning in a superb defensive shift against England.

The centre has spent the last six seasons with the Stormers in Super Rugby but will join the Panasonic Wild Knights in Japan’s Top League for the current campaign before joining Munster ahead of the 2020/21 season.

6’9″ Snyman is a lock forward and was used predominantly as an impact sub during the competition. Like De Allende, he currently has one season to play in Japan with Honda Heat before reportedly heading to Munster.
