New pastures: Casey Laulala

Munster have confirmed that Samoan centre Casey Laulala will be leaving the province at the end of the current season.

Laulala who joined Munster at the start of the 2012/13 season has attracted the interest of several European clubs who have offered terms that Munster are unable to match.

The 31-year-old former All Black made his Munster debut against Edinburgh in September 2012 and in his first season he featured in 27 of Munster's 30 games. Laulala won his 37th cap against Perpignan on Saturday.

"I have loved my time with Munster and there's a lot of rugby still to be played," said Laulala.

"I want to achieve success with these guys and hope to continue to contribute in any way I can."

"We understand Casey's reasons for leaving at the end of the season and are disappointed to see him go," said Munster boss Rob Penney.

"I'm sure he will continue to commit himself to the goals we set out at the beginning of the season and will contribute to Munster's campaign."
