Botha To Link Up With Munster

Munster have confirmed that they have completed terms with BJ Botha – subject to the usual procedure of him passing medical and fitness tests and securing a valid work permit – that will see him join on a two-year contract, starting at the end of the current season.

BJ Botha, who celebrated his 31st birthday last month, is currently in his third season with Ulster.

The World Cup-winning tighthead prop played Super 14 rugby with the Sharks and has been capped 26 times by South Africa. He made his Test debut against New Zealand in Pretoria in 2006.

Commenting on the news, Munster head coach Tony McGahan said: “We are delighted that BJ Botha has opted to join Munster. He is a player of the highest calibre who we believe will add significantly to our squad.”
