On the move.
Talented young Munster outhalf Bill Johnston looks set to leave Munster at the end of the season and move to provincial rivals Ulster in search of more game time, according to a report in the Irish Times.
Inter-provincial transfers have become increasingly popular in recent seasons, with Ulster seemingly benefitting the most, recruiting the likes of John Cooney, Jordi Murphy and Jack McGrath in recent seasons.
22-year-old Johnston is highly rated in Munster, but is the province’s fourth choice option at ten, behind Joey Carbery, Tyler Bleyendaal and JJ Hanrahan. The former U20 international has been restricted to just four starts this season.
A move to Ulster would see Johnston compete with Johnny McPhillips and Billy Burns for the outhalf berth.
