Munster Set To Sign Highly Rated South African Centre

Reinforcements.

Blue Bulls centre Dries Swanepoel is set to sign a short-term deal with Munster, according to reports in South Africa.

The 25-year-old, who made his Super Rugby debut in 2016, is set to join the Irish province as injury cover for Jaco Taute and Chris Farrell, who are both long-term absentees.

Swanepoel has spent his entire career at the Bulls where he also played for the U19, U21 and Vodacom Cup sides. He also spent two years with Tuks in the Varsity Cup and played for the Junior Springboks in 2013.

It remains to be seen if he will be drafted straight into Munster’s side for this weekend’s Champions Cup quarter final or not.
