Cape Town - Irish club Munster are reportedly set to sign World Cup-winning Springbok duo Damian de Allende and RG Snyman.

According to the Irish Times, De Allende is set to sign a two-year deal with Munster and join them ahead of the 2020/21 season.

The burly midfielder will be unavailable for the Stormers' Super Rugby campaign until next May as he will be playing for the Panasonic Wild Knights in Japan.

Meanwhile, according to the Irish Independent, lock Snyman will also join Munster ahead of the 2020/21 season.

He will also spend time in Japan with the Honda Heat, before making a switch to Ireland, the report added.

Both De Allende and Snyman were instrumental in South Africa's World Cup triumph in Japan.

De Allende was a menace with ball in hand and scored tries in the playoff victories over Japan and Wales, while his work rate on defence proved invaluable.

Snyman was mainly used as a substitute but proved his worth when he came on in the second period of the knockout games.

Munster are coached by former Springbok assistant Johann van Graan.
