    Stormers blow as Taute extends Munster stay

    2017-01-02 18:45

    Cape Town - Munster have announced that centre Jaco Taute has extended his loan period until June 2017, meaning he will miss a large chunk of Super Rugby.

    The 25-year-old has made 11 appearances for the province, scoring five tries and joins Angus Lloyd in remaining with the squad until June.

    Lloyd joined the province at the start of November on a short-term loan from Ulster, with the scrumhalf making his debut against Treviso.

    "Thankfully all parties have successfully come together in permitting us to secure Angus and Jaco for the remainder of the season," Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus told Munster Rugby on Monday.

    "We were keen to retain the services of both players as we move on to our next fixtures. With Cathal (Sheridan) continuing to rehab a long-term ankle injury and Conor (Murray) unavailable to us during the international window Angus will bolster our options at scrumhalf. 

    "Similarly, with Jaco already in the system, having him available as a fullback or centre will be invaluable as our backline options will need to adapt with international commitments and following recent injuries to Alex Wootton, Bill Johnston and Darren Sweetnam."
