Doug Howlett Lands New Role With Munster

One of the all-time greats.

Stuart Barnes once said ‘if there’s a better finisher in world rugby than Doug Howlett, he’s hidden somewhere in the Amazon,’ and he was damn right. A lethal finisher, that was also incredible in defence, Howlett could almost smash his opponents at will.

The talented winger bagged an astonishing 49 tries for the All Blacks in 62 Test and still holds the record to this day. When Howlett signed for Munster in 2007, fans of the southern province couldn’t quite believe it.

The devastating winger is one of the few superstars to come to Europe and live up to his hype and then some, winning the Heineken Cup in his first season at the Irish province.

Since retiring, he’s stuck around Munster and has now landed himself a top role with the province. The former All Black has been appointed as Munster’s new Head of Commercial and Marketing, and we wish him all the best. Absolute legend.
