    Taute heading back to Stormers after Irish stint

    Cape Town - Utility back Jaco Taute will return to the Stormers after his loan spell with Irish club Munster ends at the end of the year.

    Taute - who can play centre and fullback - joined Munster on a four-month loan contract earlier this year.

    Taute has reportedly excelled at the club, but Munster’s director of rugby Rassie Erasmus confirmed that the Springbok’s time there will end after Christmas and that no application has been made to bring him back after his contract with the Stormers ends.

    “No (we have not applied for his return). He is going back. He is still contracted with the Stormers so we only have him until December 31. He was only here while Francis (Saili) was injured, so he is going back,” Erasmus told THE42.ie website.

    Munster instead look set to set to sign Grenoble centre Chris Farrell. The deal has yet to be signed, but Erasmus confirmed that the 23-year-old is on their wish list.

    The 25-year-old Taute became a Springbok in 2012, but his career has been blighted by injury since joining Western Province from the Lions in 2013.

    He’s had more than four serious injuries since joining the Cape side, which has seen him represent them in only 23 Super Rugby games.
