It’s looking good Munster fans.
Tadhg Beirne’s move to Munster took another step forward over the weekend with Scarlets coach Wayne Pivac admitting the lock has ambitions to player for Ireland and that the PRO12 champions are beginning to look at replacements for the former Leinster man.
Beirne’s contract is up with the Welsh region at the end of the season, and he’s already turned down the offer of a new deal with them. Joe Schmidt is said to be an admirer of Beirne, who has been hugely impressive the last couple of seasons, and with Munster in desperate need of a lock, the move makes perfect sense for the 25-year-old.
“We would dearly love to keep Tadhg Beirne,” Pivac said.
“He has got burning ambitions to play for Ireland, like all our Welsh boys have to play for Wales and that is the way it should be.
“Part of it will be out of our control, but certainly we will be looking at other players as well.
“Tadhg Beirne came in from outside so if he were to go, I am sure we will find someone to replace him.”
Fingers crossed Munster fans.
