CJ Stander
CJ Stander
- One of the most consistent performers at provincial level in recent seasons, Stander was honoured as the first overseas player to win the Munster Rugby Player of the Year award at the tail-end of the 2014/15 campaign

- The powerfully-built back rower racked up seven man-of-the-match awards for Munster last season and has emerged as a real leader and inspirational captain for the Reds in the absence of Paul O'Connell and Peter O'Mahony

- The former South African Under-20 captain moved to Munster in October 2012 having played 16 times for the Bulls at Super Rugby level. He grew up on his family's dairy and vegetable farm in Grootboom, near George in South Africa, and became Irish-qualified by residency following the recent Rugby World Cup

- Signed a two-year contract extension last month, which will see him remain at Munster until at least June 2018. Scored his 23rd try on his 75th appearance for Munster against Stade Francais last week
