Johann van Graan’s Start Date With Munster Confirmed
A new era.
Friday’s night’s win over the Dragons was Rassie Erasmus’ final game in charge of Munster, with Johann van Grann set to take up his position as the province’s head coach on November 19.
His arrival will come after the Springboks have concluded their November Tests with Ireland and France, and will be in place the week before Munster’s return to PRO14 action against Zebre.
The incoming Munster boss will need to settle in quickly, with a home a game against Ospreys the following week, before a crucial double header in the Champions Cup with Leicester Tigers.
Both exciting and nervous times ahead for Munster.
