Munster have completed the signing of Western Province centre Pat Howard, who will move to the Guinness PRO12 outfit on a three-month deal.

The 22-year-old South African will join the province later in the month subject to passing the normal medical procedures, Munster confirmed.

Howard made his Western Province Currie Cup debut against Free State Cheetahs in August 2012 and has made 11 appearances in the competition.

“With players ruled out due to injury and a few other niggles we want to make sure we have a full spread available to us before we enter the next crucial period and Howard can provide that additional support,” said head coach Anthony Foley, who is looking to boost midfield stocks.
