Munster confirm Kleyn signing


Munster have signed lock Jean Kleyn on a three-year deal.

Kleyn has made 17 appearances for Super Rugby side Stormers, having progressed through the Western Province ranks, and he will make the switch to Munster where he will be reunited with Jacques Nienaber, who was defence coach during his time at the Cape Town franchise.

"Jean is a hugely exciting prospect and a great addition to the province," Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus. "I've seen his development first hand and with Jacques' extensive knowledge of him we are all up to speed on how Jean can contribute to the squad.

"A naturally athletic player we believe he will add further value to the pack and we look forward to welcoming him to Munster."
