WATCH: Jean Kleyn on settling into Irish Rugby camp and new teammates

With the World Cup looming, Ireland’s training camp for many has been a chance to reintegrate themselves into Joe Schmidt’s style of play.

For Munster lock Jean Kleyn it is a new learning curve as he is now in line to make his Irish debut after completing his three years of residency.

Speaking at Thomond Park during the Irish camp, the lock said,

“Training has been intense. We’re building at a high level. Its good to be here and to experience it. It’s fantastic.”

Coming into such an experienced squad could have been daunting for the second row but he says his new teammates have been very welcoming to him as he has settled well into his new surroundings.

“All the lads have been very welcoming, so it’s been very easy transition for me to make. Obviously, there’s a lot of Munster lads so that’s good for me.”

“Obviously adjusting to a new set of coaches, but they’re a fantastic bunch as well so it’s been very good for me.”

Watch the interview in full with Kleyn below.
