Du Preez: Staying with Munster
South African prop Wian du Preez has agreed a two-year deal with Munster after impressing while on loan at Thomond Park.
Du Preez, who has been capped once by the Springboks, initially joined Munster on a three-month deal from Super 14 outfit the Cheetahs.
However the 27-year-old has now agreed to commit to a long-term deal after becoming disillusioned in his bid to gain further international recognition.
"The highly regarded and popular player will be a very valuable addition to the Munster squad in the run up to, and throughout the World Cup," said a statement on Munster's official site.
