Former Springbok and Bulls flank Arno Botha has signed a one-year deal with Irish club Munster.
Botha, who only signed for his current side London Irish in January, will join Johann van Graan’s side ahead of the 2018/19 season
Van Graan, who coached Botha both at the Bulls and Springboks, is confident that the 26-year old will be a success in Ireland.
‘In building our squad for next season I believe Arno will be a great addition to our side, adding further depth and strength to our back row options.
‘From my time with the Bulls and South Africa I have first-hand experience of what Arno is capable of. A physical ball carrier and lineout jumper, he leads by example with his work-rate, commitment and physicality, and we look forward to welcoming him to the province.’
