Erasmus On The Areas He Will Look To Strengthen In The Transfer Market This Summer
Munster Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus will look do some business in the transfer market this summer.
The southern province are set to lose both Donnacha Ryan and Dave Foley from their second-row department, with a new lock top of the South African’s wish list.
Erasmus has also revealed he may look to bolster his front-row and possibly add another loose forward.
“We have a few gaps we have to fill,” said Erasmus.
“We’re 95% there, we have to get the balance right at second row. There’s guys like Darren O’Shea who are putting their hand up, guys like Dave O’Callaghan can help us out there and Billy [Holland] is there, Jean Kleyn.”
“But with Donnacha and Dave Foley moving on, young Sean O’Connor and Fineen [Wycherley] coming through, we probably need a solid signing there, which I’m currently trying to do.”
We’d like to bolster a little bit more in the front row and maybe at loose forward, but in saying that we’d have a lot of Irish guys in mind because we only have a certain amount of foreign spots and only a certain amount of money.
“I would say we’re 95% there.”
Munster have already signed Irish backs James Hart, JJ Hanrahan and Chris Farrell for the 2017-18 campaign.
