CJ Stander Could Follow Peter O’Mahony Out The Door At Munster This Summer
CJ Stander could very well follow captain Peter O’Mahony out the door at Munster this summer, according to a report in The Irish Times this morning.
Stander’s contract negotiations, to move from a provincial to national contract, have stalled according to the report’s sources as the back-for forward could almost triple his current salary by moving to a French club.
Apparently Stander’s size and durability make him an even more enticing target for Top 14 clubs than O’Mahony, who are known for their physicality and gruelling seasons.
In total Stander clocked up a whopping 2,239 minutes in 31 games last season, making him one of the most durable players in world rugby.
Here’s the full breakdown…
PRO12: 663 minutes (nine matches)
Champions Cup: 626 minutes (eight matches)
November Internationals: 182 minutes (three matches)
Six Nations: 383 minutes (five matches)
British & Irish Lions: 385 minutes (six matches)
The report also suggests that a French club has offered to double the new salary Peter O’Mahony is currently being offered by the IRFU.
