Shock switch as Deysel moves north

Jean Deysel arrived in Ireland with a strong reputation from his days playing in South Africa with the Sharks. Deysel made 156 appearances for the franchise and was capped a further four times for his country.

Deysel made a move to Munster three months ago and despite limited game time this season, he was widely expected to play a more prominent role for the province in the upcoming season.

However, in a shock twist of events, Ulster have announced the signing of the 32-year-old Springbok. One thing is for sure, Ulster have added a very useful player to their squad.

Munster have since tweeted their goodbyes to the versatile forward, highlighting how it wont be long before they meet again. We would also like to wish Deysel the best of luck in his career with Ulster.
