Munster Sign Lock On Three-Month Deal From Premiership Side

Much needed reinforcements.

Munster have added to their much depleted second-row with the signing of Irishman Mark Flanagan from European champions Saracens on a three-month loan deal.

The former Leinster players had spells with Mont-de-Marsan in the French PRO D2 and Bedford Blues in the English Championship before joining Saracens last season, making 11 appearances for them in the Aviva Premiership.

The 28-year-old Westmeath native will link up with the squad early next week. The 6′ 7″ lock is also the cousin of Leinster and Ireland star Devin Toner.
