There have been a few rumours linking Munster with a new South African lock. The man that everyone believes will happen is 22-year-old Stormers second row Jean Kleyn.
On the face of it, it seems like a great move. Munster can use second row help. He's young, he's talented, and he is potentially Irish eligible. He seems to be handpicked by new Munster director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus - who would know a lot about Kleyn in his former role as high performance director for South Africa Rugby.
Until now, the move had only been rumoured - but reports in South Africa today hint that Western Province have given permission for him to leave before the Currie Cup campaign starts at the end of the Super Rugby season.
Kleyn himself seems to have given strong indications that the move will be happening in his twitter account. The 22-year-old has retweeted two South African stories about the move. Either that means it's happening, or he'd love for it to happen.
Kleyn had already made his Stormers Super Rugby debut, but is firmly behind Eben Etzebeth in the pecking order - no shame in that. He has 13 Super Rugby caps in the last two years, and would be the first Western Province lock to move to Ireland since Quinn Roux.
I think it would be a good move for Munster and Kleyn, and if it goes well - Irish Rugby will benefit.
