South African star requests early release to join Munster in blockbuster deal

On the move.

Munster Rugby today announced that three of their players have signed new contracts and look set to add to their stocks next season with a blockbuster signing.

Stephen Archer, Dave Kilcoyne, and Calvin Nash have all committed to the province and now according to a report by French publication Le Progres, Thaakir Abrahams requested an early release from his contract with Top 14 outfit Lyon after just one season at the side in order to link up with Munster.

URC fans will remember Abrahams from his time with the Sharks, who he left at the end of last season.

Abrahams can play across the back three and would be a perfect replacement for Simon Zebo who recently announced he will be retiring at the end of the season.
