Former Bulls lock Jason Jenkins will part ways with Munster and join Leinster at the end of the season.
Jenkins, who has also played for Japanese side Toyota Verblitz, joined Munster on a one-year deal last year but injuries have restricted the 26-year-old’s involvement.
The Irish outfit have confirmed that the one-capped Springbok will join Leinster ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
🗣️ “It is still my hope to finish the season strong on the field with Munster Rugby & that is where my focus will be over the coming months.”

“I’d like to thank Johann [van Graan], all the coaches and management staff at Munster Rugby and, in particular, the medical team and physios,” Jenkins told the club’s website.
“To say that I have been frustrated with the season and my injuries would be an understatement, but I cannot speak highly enough of the group of people that I have had the privilege of working with.
“Munster gave me the opportunity to come to Ireland and I am very grateful for that and have loved my time in Limerick. I’d also like to thank the players for welcoming me with open arms into their environment and making me feel right at home from day one.
“It is still my hope to finish the season strong on the field with Munster and that is where my focus will be over the coming months.”
Jenkins added: “When that is to one side, I will get ready for a new challenge with Leinster Rugby.
“I have had a number of conversations with Leo [Cullen] and I am excited for what the future holds and experiencing a new city and a new rugby environment.”
