Munster have announced the signing of flanker Chris Cloete and lock Gerbrandt Grobler.
Southern Kings and Pumas flanker Cloete has signed a three-year deal, while Grobler joins on a one-year contract.
Cloete, 26, scored six tries from 21 appearances for the Port Elizabeth Super Rugby side and has enjoyed a successful season during the Kings 2017 campaign.
Currently with the Pumas, Cloete previously spent time playing in Sri Lanka and also lined out for Western Province in the Currie and Vodacom Cups.
His impressive form this season saw him selected for South Africa's 'A' side where he played a key part in the team's 48-28 win over French Barbarians, scoring two tries during the June series.
Meanwhile, 25-year-old Grobler joins Thomond Park from Top 14 side Racing 92, where he scored five tries from 20 appearances during the 2016/17 season.
While both signings are subject to being granted valid work permits and obtaining medical clearance, Grobler will link up with the squad during pre-season and Cloete will join the province on completion of his Currie Cup commitments.
