Munster have announced that tighthead prop Ciaran Parker has signed a one-year-contract with the PRO14 side ahead of the upcoming season.

Parker has made 12 appearances for Sale in the Premiership where he learnt his trade as a youngster in their academy.

He was part of the England U20 side that won the 2015 Junior Six Nations but is also eligible to play for Ireland.

Munster kick off their PRO14 campaign with a home tie against Treviso on Friday, October 1.
