Munster - Munster have signed Cheetahs loosehead prop Wian Du Preez on a three-month contract.

According to the Irish Independent, with Marcus Horan and Dave Ryan ruled out until after Christmas and Darragh Hurley struggling with a shoulder injury, the 27-year-old Du Preez will join up with the Magners League champions once his participation in the Springboks' European tour is complete.

Du Preez put in powerful performance when the Cheetahs almost pulled off a famous victory over the British & Irish Lions in June, eventually going down 26-24.

Du Preez will return to South Africa for pre-season training with the Cheetahs ahead of the 2010 Super 14.

Du Preez will join former Stormers captain Jean de Villiers at Munster.
