The Angry Munster Fan Reaction To The IRFU Blocking Move For Australia Captain

The Angry Munster Fan Reaction To The IRFU Blocking Move For Australia Captain
By PJ Browne Updated

The IRFU have reportedly blocked a move which would have seen Australia captain Stephen Moore join Munster following the conclusion of the upcoming Super Rugby season.

According to The42.ie, the 32-year-old was open to the move but IRFU performance director David Nucifora was unwilling to sanction the signing. Nucifora's reasoning was that Moore's addition could hinder the development of hookers currently with the province.

Moore - born to Irish parents in Saudi Arabia - grew up in Galway, but moved to Australia when he was five.

The player, who captained Australia to the World Cup final against New Zealand, has accumulated 102 caps for the Wallabies. He was named in World Rugby's Team of the Tournament.

Reaction from Munster fans regarding the IRFU decision has been pretty much unanimously negative.
