Munster Star Set To Finalise Move To English Premiership Side

New Zealand centre Francis Saili is close to finalising a move away from Munster.

The former Auckland Blues man is out of contract at the end of the season after a two-year spell, with The Rugby Paper reporting that a deal to move to Premiership side Harlequins is close to being completed.

As reported earlier this month, Munster boss Rassie Erasmus has decided to keep South African Jaco Taute at the club, with Saili being the man sacrificed. Munster are currently negotiating his release from the Stormers, but do not expect complications.

Saili’s move to Harlequins leaves Jamie Roberts future up in the air, with a possible move back to one of the Welsh regions perhaps on the cards.
