Munster have announced that forward Jason Jenkins has signed for Leinster. Jenkins joined Munster last summer but injuries have hampered his time at Thomond Park.
The 26-year-old is looking forward to the new challenge ahead. He thanked Munster for all their help. “First of all, I’d like to thank Johann [van Graan], all the coaches and management staff at Munster and in particular the medical team and physios.
“To say that I have been frustrated with the season and my injuries would be an understatement, but I cannot speak highly enough of the group of people that I have had the privilege of working with.
“Munster gave me the opportunity to come to Ireland and I am very grateful for that and have loved my time in Limerick. I’d also like to thank the Munster players for welcoming me with open arms into their environment and making me feel right at home from day one.
“It is still my hope to finish the season strong on the field with Munster and that is where my focus will be over the coming months.”
Leinster Head Coach Leo Cullen is looking forward to welcoming the Springbok to Leinster. He said: “We understand how unfortunate Jason has been with injuries since his arrival in Ireland but everyone can also see what he brings to the table in terms of his physicality, his size and his skillset and we look forward to welcoming him to Leinster ahead of next season. I know from talking to him that he is looking forward to the challenge and putting his hand up for selection in a competitive group of players.”
