Munster Lining Up Exciting Rugby World Cup Star To Replace Simon Zebo

Puma power.

Munster are looking to replace departing fullback Simon Zebo with Argentina international utility back Santiago Cordero, according to a report in The Limerick Leader this morning.

Cordero starred in the 2015 Rugby World Cup, starting against Ireland in the quarter-final and has 33 caps to his name. The 24-year-old plays his rugby with the Jaguares, but has not been included in their squad for the 2018 season.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE

He has also been linked with a move to the Premiership, but it now seems Munster have identified him as a prime target.

Meanwhile, highly rated South African tighthead prop 18-year-old Keynan Knox is training with Munster’s Academy.
