Report: Exciting South African Centre Set To Join Munster
By Maurice Brosnan

25-year-old Bulls centre Dries Swanepoel is set to sign for Munster as injury cover, according to various reports in South Africa.

Swanepoel has played for South Africa as a schoolboy and U20. With the news confirmed that Munster are set to be without Keith Earls for six weeks due to the injury he suffered against England as well as the prolonged absence of Jaco Taute and Chris Farrell, it looks like the province will turn to Swanepoel on a short-term deal.

Current Munster head coach Johann van Graan did start out as a technical adviser with the Bulls and thus is likely to be familiar with the hard-running 13.

Munster are currently in preparation for the visit of Toulon to a sold-out Thomond Park for Saturday's Champions Cup quarter-final, but beyond that the addition of Swanepoel will go some way towards easing the considerable concerns given the provinces current injury woes.
